Fourth day of training. One week from today I’ll be leaving those other racers in my dust. Take that, four-year-olds-and-under runners!
Today’s goal was to concentrate on water intake.
Here is my very interesting tabulation:
Coffee consumed: 1 cup
Water consumed: 4-and-a-half half-bottles plus whatever I happened to down with daily meds
Gum consumed: 3 pieces, two of which were totally gnarly
Bathroom trips: 6 (so far — the night is still young)
The statistics plainly show that I am in TOP SHAPE for running a marathon.
Also, for dinner, we ate massive amounts of cow. Yay protein! At least, I think protein is good. After reading about it on wikipedia, I kind of just want to take a nap.
Now I have to go, because the room is dark and one of the many (many many many many) moths that has entered our house through SCREENLESS WINDOWS is attacking me and my marathon training blog post. Assuredly, there is a brief cardio workout in my future while I FREAK OUT.
Tomorrow: marathons I wish I was running instead of this one.
