Ok enough with the lovefest, I am already nauseated. You have to understand, a year ago I was trying to prepare for my first race; The Susan G Komen Race for the Cure a 5k. At the time I could not run 2 miles without walking. Running 10 miles was not something I thought I would ever do. NOT A CHANCE. Well here I am. I am not going to lie, it was hard. Mile 7 was hell. I tried a different kind of gel...does not work. Water is even hard for me to take. I get really bad side pain that takes forever to pass. At mile 9 I was in a lot of pain, I had to walk. I know I will have to drink, or I will get really dizzy and I would not want to pass out. I am wondering if I should take a salt pill...if yes when? Before the race or during? If you have experience with those I am looking for advices.
I iced my legs when I got home I hope I can walk ok tomorrow!!!
I know I can do the half. I could have at least walk 3 more miles so I know I will finish and for the first one that is the goal.
I have made some decisions
The belt because I don't like you bouncing on my back and also because you push on my belly and are not helping anything stomach related. ITouch: well you and Nike+ are liars and also because you need a new battery and I need music for more then 2 hours.
You are invited to my Half Marathon:
You because I need music and you are tiny and you will last over 2 hours.
You because you are the perfect socks (Nike Livestrong running sock) and compression Nike Pro shorts because you stay in place and well...I am pretty sure I would not like that chaffing thing so you are in!
You 3 because I know I could never do this without you. Best supporting crew ever! Also because I will need you to hand me some water as I pass by you and maybe a granola bar or a piece of banana. And a lot of "Let's go mommy!" " You got this" "Don't give up".
Today I ran 10 miles. Just had to type that again.
I saw 4 movies this weekend
Social Network, The kids are all right, Inception and Blue Valentine.
Social Network: Good not as excellent as they say. Justin T. Excellent in it though. B+
The kids are all right: Excellent! Loved it! Love Annette Bennings. A+
Inception: not for me, I gave up after less then 30 min.
Blue Valentine: Excellent. Very sad, broke my heart. Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams are great in it. Highly recommend. A+
Off to watch the Golden Globes!
