Rest? But I’m spending the day in heals?!!?
Tues 11/5 – a lot of standing and talk rehearsing in heals
Wed 11/6 – 2 hrs standing at a poster session in heals again…

Rest = all I could do to keep it together through the work day after my red-eye back last night
Fri 10/4 – rest
See Thursday’s note
Sat 10/5 – 7ish mi
Today was much better! I slept in and actually felt like a normal human being for the first time in a while. It’s gotten a bit chilly (and windy) and the 7 miles were harder than they should have been this morning, but all things considered it wasn’t too bad.
Sun 10/6 – 8ish
Today was even better! 🙂 It was day 2 of sleeping in and cranking out a relatively solid 8 miles. It felt better than yesterday which is a nice bonus.
t-minus one week to marathon time!! 😀
Total mileage = 15 mi
Yikes!! Bad girl!
Q: Who runs 15 miles a week during the marathon training season?
An injured person. A perfectly healthy Dr. Trot.
I have no good excuses for this aside from laziness. (Note: laziness is a very good excuse…not a very satisfying one, but it’s completely honest and explains everything.) If there has been any harm done it’ll become evident in the later half of the “race” on Sunday. Hopefully my
subbornness mental strength will get me though however. One way or another, we’ll find out soon!
