I'm procrastinating. I'm at Cafe' Delirium in downtown Gresham, my homework hotspot, NOT doing my homework. Before arriving here to write an Art lesson plan for my class tomorrow night, I completed my long run for the week- 12 miles. I'm tired, achy, tired, hungry... you get the idea. I can't focus at all on homework. So, I'm blogging instead.
The marathon training has been plugging along. I'm in love with the 3 day a week schedule, I'm just beginning to wonder if I'll really be able to complete the 26.2 miles in only 6 weeks. The 12 today was not overly hard, but it also wasn't even half the distance! I had one guy tell me that the first 20 miles of the race is all physical and the last 6.2 is all mental. Mind over matter... and pain and doubt. I'm already trying to figure out what motivating songs I need on my playlist around hour 3!
Next week's long run jumps to 14 miles, I think. It will officially mark my longest run at one time ever... wish me luck! :)
