Another 2 weeks of training in the books, which means that in only 5 weeks I’ll be reunited with my mom running my 6th marathon!
I’m super excited because my mom has never been to any of my marathons and having her by my side will motivate me and give me strength!
These past 2 weeks have been fun. We went to L.A. to see my dear mother-in-law competing on the first night of Dancing With The Stars! We had a blast and if you want to join the fun tune in tomorrow at 8pm EST on abc and don’t forget to vote!
What an AMAZING week ends today… These past days were filled with joy, happiness and great accomplishments!
There were 4 events in the past 7 days that completely filled my heart with joy:
Another recovery week is behind me… But now it seems that I’ll have a full month of recovery instead of just a couple of weeks.
On Monday I went for an easy 7 mile run and I felt fine but when I tried to do the same on Tuesday I ended up walking back home. The pain on the outside of my right knee was so intense that I couldn’t even jog. I iced it, used the foam roller and three days later, when the pain was gone, I tried to go again but the same thing happened.
This was my last “serious” week of training for the NYC Marathon so I wanted to give it all I could…
We had a dinner party at the house that turned into a great evening with friends surrounded by pizza, salad, champagne, beer, wine and more wine!
Fall is finally arriving down here… can you believe that when I went for my run this morning it was 64F? The humidity is still pretty intense but at least the temperature dropping helps a little bit!
