ORN: 7/29/05: REST
With the 1/2 marathon on Sunday, it's important to try to get my legs as rested as possible. Flying and standing around at an Expo is not the best way to rest, but I don't have any choice. I've decided to take an extra day off of running, to try and get as much recovery as I can.
Word on the street is that the course is hilly which, of course, is something we can't prepare for in Chicago. So, the plan is to walk as much of the uphill as I need to and run the downhills when I can.
I'm more nervous about this race than I expected to be. I'm worried that I don't have the right clothes, that I'm not really prepared, and that I'm going to end up getting pulled off the course. Sound familiar?
Standing at the starting line is always like reading a mystery novel. I'm never quite sure how it's going to turn out!
Waddle on, friends.
