Well the ticker is tickering…

7 days until the Bayshore Marathon. Am I excited?  Well yeah. I started what can only be called “extreme tapering”   this week.   It feels great, which is not exactly how I have felt on a taper before.  Usually I feel kind of anxious, and sort of antsy. This week, so far I feel …

Marathon training Day 67

LOL.  I was typing this and thinking, “Oh I am getting behind on my charting”  It would be that way, as I am always going to be a nurse. Anyway.  MTD 67 was a one hour swim. It was a GLORIOUS day. The water was COLD, the air was HOT.  I didn’t swim too fast, …

Marathon Training Day 66

Again I had to get up really to get in a 5 mile tempo run. I was really worried.  When I woke up, my left lower leg was feeling MUCH better.  I was still worried though.  I’ve had some pretty poor success with any sort of speed work lately, etc. I got up kind of …

Marathon Training Day 65

I was so worried on Tuesday that I would not be able to do the piddly 3 mile run. After walking the dog in the morning, I could tell that it was still pretty wonky. I put some KT tape on it, and decided to try it out anyway.  I’m having some time management issues …

Marathon Training Day 56

18 mile run. Oh man. Well, it was faster than my 17 miler. I went to Fleet Feet in Altamonte springs looking for KT tape on Saturday to help with the run.  I admit, my first trip to Fleet Feet, I was Super Impressed.  This time, not so much.  The person who greeted me actually …

This was a nice day.  I got off work early Yahoo!  I also managed to get work DONE today, which is awesome. Anyway I got off at about 2:30 and bounced over to the gym.  Because it was early I was able to easily get a lane in the pool.  I was sharing with a …

Marathon Training Day 51…

3 miles easy and weights were on the schedule. My work schedule is really terribly crazy.  I’ve been going in at 6:30 am and giving some inservices, and then going in at 6:30 pm and giving inservices. In between I am trying to work, and my Manager is being CRAZEE. So I got off work …

Day 42, Marathon Training

Still feeling fatigue.   but am feeling better than Friday. I woke up this morning and went to meet my friend from work. She suggested 7:30 am which was a really late time for me.  In retrospect, I wonder if I am always so tired because I force myself out to run very early in …
