Week 17 - The last long run

Eight miles - that was all I needed to do yesterday. Eight measly miles. Of course, it was hard getting out the door, but once I was out, it was a good run. Well, actually it was one of those runs where I felt like I was going slow but after I was done and looked at my watch, I saw I was going quite a bit faster than I had imagined. 

This upcoming week, the final week's training runs are pretty short, just 4, 3 and then a final 2 mile run. I don't know where I'll find the time. 

I can't describe the anxiety and anticipation I have going on right now. One minute I feel great, I can do this. The next I'm wondering at what mile will my leg fall off. I guess I'll just have to trust that I've trained enough and that there isn't a whole lot more that I can do. 

I've had a couple of additional donations to my fundraising page, thank you so much Uncle Tim, Jen, Angie and Michael. There's still time to give you you want. You can by clicking on the link on the right hand side. Also, Mr. H. is still working to meet his fundraising goal. So if you haven't had a chance to contribute, you can do so to him here: http://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/johnpaulhiggins/chicago-marathon-2012
