I didn't sleep well last night. I slept in a little this morning and ran on the treadmill. 8.3 boring miles!

Gorgeous morning run with Jenny and Tee through Holladay. 16 is a lot less than 22! Two weeks! Share all your TOU advice with me!!! 7:07 average.

I met Tee super early for a track workout. Trying to move fast before 6:00 am is tough. We warmed up three miles. My workout was 5x 1000 at 3:30 with 400 recovery. Tee wanted six, so I paced her on her last one. I ran 3:30, 3:28, 3:27: 3:29 (got a little too comfortable on this one) 3:22, and 3:33 with Tee. 1.5 mile cooldown.

Either my legs are freshening up, or I run faster later in the morning. Probably both. 6.3 later morning miles. 6:51 average. I'm bored with tapering.

Lagoon, hamburgers for dinner, and a major bout of insomnia did not make for the best race ever. But, that's ok. I signed up for this race to run it as a good pre-marathon work out. It served it's purpose. It was a fairly tough course with long gradual uphills. 5:42, 6:00, 5:53, and I don't know what the last little bit was.

Warmed up 4.5 miles. Cooled down back on the course to find my son, who ran 24:58. It was his first time breaking 25. 1.5 mile cooldown.

So, heading out the door, I thought about how perfectly this training cycle has gone; no illness, no injury, and I hit allmy training and race benchmarks. So, of course Karma bit me in the butt. I rolled my ankle today, and strained a muscle up in my hip when I landed. The ankle is fine, but my hip hurts pretty badly. Awesome. 7:07 average.

After babying my leg yesterday, I tested it out. I can run, but I can definitely feel the strain up through my butt. There's no power coming from my right side. Hmmm . . .what to do? I have a few days to heal up. I was planning on taking Thursday off and running 2-3 easy on Friday. I wanted a fartlek workout tomorrow, but that might not be smart.

This may be a much slower marathon than I have trained and hoped for. At least I don't have the pressure of hitting a certain time or place. It is what it is.

Warm up and then 8 x 1 minute on/off and finished with a half mile at marathon pace-ish. (2:57,so sorta fast). Running easy the leg feels better. I can definitely feel the strain/lack of power when I push hard.

I'm not going to run tomorrow, and limit Friday to 15-20 minutes and hope for the best. I can run, and I'm going to race. It just might not be what I had hoped for.

"Right butt-leg" made me laugh! I'm so thankful for Allie!
