Just might have the bug

Despite the last three miles being horrible... I think I want to do more marathons! It's that curiosity of how could I do. Three days later, I have my right calf that's a little tight still but otherwise I feel great! (yay recovery socks!!!)

One thing I need to start doing again is much more strength workouts. I went to the gym after work today and rode the bike for a little over 30 minutes. Then I did a whole bunch of abs and a tiny bit of tricepts and legs. It felt really good.

I got new shoes while I was back in the bay... along with insoles cause I apparently have super high arches and pronate some... which is a strange combination I was told! They feel a little funny, but i'm going to give them a shot.

SO which marathon should I do next???

So despite only having my toughest training run be 7.5 miles of big hills... I FINISHED! And I ran the ENTIRE TIME!

Race Results:
7113 L F 25-29
Full Marathon Start: Gun 5:30:00 Chip 6:31:30
Splits:7.6 MiHalf20 miFinishO'AllSexDiv

Between miles 23 & 26 I almost cried three times and felt like I was going to hyperventilate.... but I pushed through and T and I finished together.

yes, the time was long... but imagine if I had actually trained ;-)
Perhaps the next one!
