I received my Ogden Marathon confirmation email last night...I'm IN!!! I'm SUPER SUPER excited and yet very nervous! I reviewed my flexible training plan (2 mile/week increase and every 2 weeks is a rest week) I made earlier in the week and started planning tune up races. Then I got frustrated with myself for not being laid-back and not having the "I don't care" attitude. And I couldn't fall asleep because my brain was in overload. "Am I trying to do too much too soon"..."I won't be able to get my fitness back and this will all be a waste of time and money" yada....yada...yada....
Running makes me mental sometimes.
I went to the gym this morning. Once I realized how warm it was, I wish I had gone outside. I watched a news story of how a lady gave birth in her car as her husband was driving her to the hospital. Ahhhhh...
6 x 5 min walk/5 min run 52:52 (getting faster)
During my last 5 min run, I really wanted to make it to 4.9 miles so it was actually an 6:22 minute run and I walked the last .10 as a cool down. I ran most of my runs at 7.0 mph or higher which is WAY faster than I normally do. I was breathing hard, but definitely manageable.

My massage therapist worked on my lower legs today. She's SO awesome!
