Struggling a bit, Susan, that's all. I feel over-extended. Happy that I'll be attempting #2 in January, but the fact that the heart of the training takes place right when I hit the busiest time of the year... is a bit daunting. I've been meeting up with Grace as usual, and as usual we cover about a mile or so together before I eat her dust. Last weekend's long run fell a bit short. I think I twinged my hamstring trying to correct my stride uphill. That sucked. I think I have shin splints, too. The top of my right calf just hurts. This weekend's long run I'll be wearing the new Microbounce sneakers I bought. (I couldn't find my beloved Gigarides, and this looks like the next generation.)
In other news, Chris and I got the Wii Fit, and it's a whole lotta fun. It doesn't take place of my strength training, but it's fun enough to supplement with the yoga. Genius product, I tell ya.
I'm also getting a bit depressed because all the NYC Marathon ads are out in full force around the city. Is this withdrawal??
