Tracy’s Marathon Quest Update 2

October 23, 2009

Things are looking better for me this week.

I got a new job, and while this is a good thing, it really cuts down on my free time, so it will take some time for me to adjust from a life of leisure to a working life. This also cuts into my running time. I now have to really try to stick to a good schedule.

After my disastrous knee set-back from two Saturday’s ago and my successful 5k last Sunday I quickly got back into the swing of things.

I ran with my running group on Monday and found a woman to trail that kept a pretty fast pace and before and after the meet-up I ran a relatively easy mile.

Tuesday I had falafel, and while this isn’t running, I do consider it some form of exercise.

Wednesday brought a 9+ mile run, and today I managed to squeeze out 6 miles, but I did think I was going to die several times throughout the hour. I think this is due to my horrible diet today and the fact that I ate too close to the time that I ran. Bad idea.

Tomorrow it is supposed to rain so I will clean the house instead of exercise and Saturday is the DeKalb Rape Crisis Center’s Take Back the Night 5k. I have done this race several times and Sean also said he is going to do this one. I like the cause more than anything, but I haven’t run the new course yet. We’ll update with a review once the whole thing is over.
