Hey Roz......Just repeat after me....I can do this, I can do this. Glad that you are feeling better and not haveing knee, butt or stomache pain. Like nono & Carrie have said you will be just fine.
When I first thought about doing this I thought that I was , but now that I have started doing it I know that I will be able to finish. Today was the first day that I went to the mall to do my walking because of the heat. It was so nice not getting overheated and being able to walk for the whole time that I was suppose to do. The hardest part about today was when I had to slow down for my cooldown walk. Body kept wanting to go faster and walk longer. But, I just did what the training schedule said.
Missed my 7 mi run last night 'cause I crawled in bed 15 min before I should have headed out to run!
BUT, I did set my alarm for 5:15 a.m. before I fell asleep and got up and ran 5 by myself and then swung by the house and picked up Renee for the final 2 mi.
I signed up for a 10 mi race on Aug. 2, and I haven't run a long run since... June 4 (7 mi) or June 6 (6 mi). But I can squeeze in an 8 miler at the end of this week, so I think I can do this comfortably. I tell you this story to show you how all your training will pay off in year 3. It won't be such an effort to maintain your fitness level and you won't be a slave to your running schedule. So, here's my plan for this week and next to make it to race day:
M-T-W: 7-4-5 F-S:5-2
M-T-T: 8-3-4 S night, race night: 10

Well you SHOULD. Time for a pedicure!!!!! Lets all go tomorrow!!!!!
Some easy ideas for giving your feet some attention:
Soak 'em for 15 min. once in awhile.
Use some oil or lotion and give them a rub a couple times a week.
Use a footstool or hassack or recliner and put them up for a few minutes here and there.
As CB suggests, get a pedicure.
Book a 1/2 hour reflexology session with a massage therapist.
Buy some recovery sandals from one of the big names in sports shoes.
We picked OKW for the lower points, I couldn't believe how much higher this season was. Plus it's OKW.
I have today off since I'm on call/work the weekend. I ran late last night (only 2.5 still, I'm only on W6 of my C25K) and couldn't believe how much better I felt afterwards. There must be something to this whole exercise is good for you thing afterall. I have been horrible with crosstraining, and think I might just go buy a seated bicycle thingy at Sears. It would be cheaper, much cheaper than joining the gym and then I have the whole no excuse late at night thing.
