So-I've had a chance for Boston to settle and it's been exactly one week since race day! Since I haven't been doing much running I've been doing A LOT of thinking and here's what I've come up with in absolute CLASSIC random fashion:
*There are way too many crazy people who have already run ANOTHER marathon since Boston
*I am not one of those crazy people!
*I will never be one of those crazy people!
*I was more tired at the end of Boston than at the end of Twin Cities. Does that mean I really didn't make that much of an improvement, I just ran harder?
*The Boston course was not quite as difficult as I anticipated. I like downhills and they were quite helpful to me.
*I have totally packed on weight in the last 4 weeks and I am NOT happy with myself right now!
*I don't know what to do with all this Boston memorabilia. I want to save it but don't know what to do with it.
*Recovery SUCKS and I can't run for SHIT!
*I have a half marathon in less than 4 weeks and I need to decide whether I have a goal for this
*I am not running much but I don't feel relaxed. I feel highly stressed and anxious!
*Have I mentioned I HATE recovery
*I am running a 5K with my daughter on Saturday. She is 9 and very excited about this! It is her 3rd 5K.
*I miss Dunkin' Donuts and Starbucks.
*At one point I swore I would only ever run one marathon and cross it off my bucket list. This is now the ONLY race I like.
*I need to find some sort of pill to make me sweat less. Seriously, anything over 6 miles and the people on the treadmill next to me at the gym get a free shower!
*Would I have gotten 3:15 if I ran with the 3:15 pace band? Probably not...
*Running occupies no less than 75% of my thoughts
*I love reading race reports!
*My house needs an overhaul but I don't care about it right now.
*I cut out sugar again and it is ABSOLUTELY killing me!
*2 people have asked me how long the Boston marathon was
*My sister paid my entry fee and travel expenses to travel to Chicago for the Rock n'Roll HM in August! I LOVE Chicago!
*Do I really have to wait another year for a vacation alone with my husband?
*I need a fall marathon in September or Late October, early November. I don't want to spend a million dollars to travel there. I hate making decisions.
*I am totally craving this Greek pizza I had in Boston! SOOO Good!
*What if I never get below 3:18:37.
*Did anyone else go into Johnny Cupcakes in Boston and think they sold cupcakes..lol!
*Why do I live in Roseau?
*Why is it so D*MN windy here?
*I want candy!
*Is the Boston Marathon really over???????????
