Today is Day 1 of Week 1 of my Chicago marathon training. I've spent the past week relaxing around the house, studying, spending time with friends and family, eating too much junk, and the weekend at my parents lake house. It has been wonderful, but doing nothing has been exhausting for me. Basically it is more difficult for me to relax then it is to be scheduled. I am a neurotic control freak.
So after a wonderful weekend in the middle of the Wisconsin woods watching dogs swim,
Eating foods covered in sauces, cheese, and lots of butter,
And chillin on a boat,
these legs are ready to work it out, or sweat it out in todays case.
I came home this afternoon with some lovely weather waiting for me. Workout 1 of marathon season, an easy 10 miler, and these comfortable conditions are awaiting to be graced with my presence.
I probably shouldn't have stayed up past my bedtime eating too many s'mores or rolled over when the alarm went off this morning so that I could have gotten my run in while the weather was still playing nice. But I didn't. So I may have to do a modified workout this afternoon, which probably isn't the right foot to start off on. There are still 125 days until race morning, so I don't think a modified workout on day 1 will be too bad. I guess the good news is I'll probably sweat off all of the fried items and cheese I have been shoving into my mouth for the past 48 hours.
Being locked up in the middle of nowhere and not having a 3G connection in the middle of a lake has really put me behind in my blog reading. I guess that means tonight after I recover from losing 30 pounds of sweat from my run my tushie will be parked on my couch with my eyes glued on my laptop.
