No workout this morning. Still letting my body rest and recover. No real soreness. I'm just tired. I think this is as much from traveling and walking all over the city as it is from the marathon.
Not much to whine about this week. I do wish my marathon finish time would have been better. That is why I've already made a decision about what's next.
I want to know what I can do. Randee want's absolutely nothing to do with this marathon. Talia is going to run the race, so at least I'll have a friend at the start line! It's going to be strange to not have Randee right next to me, but I've got to go this alone. For my own peace of mind, I have to do this.
I have decided to run this particular race for a few reasons.
- It's on December 4. I think this is time to give my body a quick rest and get back into training. It also means I don't have to start all over!
- It's a large local race. My family can come out a cheer me on (**HINT HINT**)
- You get a finishers shirt!
- The Fort Worth Marathon offers a 20 mile race three weeks before the White Rock Marathon.
I'm gonna drink some wine. I think. Right now I'm still trying to figure out 'Plan B' for dinner. I put BBQ chicken into the oven and set the timer for 1 hour. It went off a moment ago and I realized I forgot the important step of turning the oven on. Brilliant. Perhaps a glass of wine would help get my head out of this fog.
You will have to excuse this sorry excuse for a Whine and Wine Wednesday. I'm headed to the wine cellar now to select some purple goodness that will hopefully help me clear my head. Or put me to sleep. Either one works for me.
Happy Whining and Wineing
