Quick Update!!

I am so excited that I have 5 days off from school! It’s our “unofficial” fall break! Luckily, our director moved some classes around so we could have a mini break and it is much needed! Unfortunately, I still have some studying and school work to get done so it won’t be a total break from school. But I will take anything I can get!!


My foot felt a little better this morning when I woke up and throughout the day. I am hoping these arch supports are working. I tried to wear my tennis shoes around the house instead of going barefoot to give my foot some more support and I have been stretching and icing like crazy today! I am hoping tomorrows rest day will also help it to be totally ready for Saturday’s 5k! I can’t tell ya’ll how excited I am to race again! It’s been almost a year since my last race! And that is mostly due to my ankle injury last winter.


I had another good treadmill run today. I thought that was the best choice because it’s a softer surface for my foot and no hills since they are supposed to aggravate it. I did 5 miles again, 2 mins hard, 2 mins recovery. Was a good run, felt a little more tired than I did yesterday. I think I juts like the 5-4-3-2-1 run better than the intervals I did today!


Tomorrow I have a bunch of errands to run then am going to be relaxing before the race on Saturday! I am thinking pizza for dinner will be my pre race meal! What do ya’ll eat the night before your races? After the race my parents are going to help me mulch my yard so that will be another good workout! Happy early Friday to everyone!


  1. I'll eat pizza or pasta or something italian. It's the only thing I know won't upset me the next day.

  2. Before my last marathon, I had a calzone...it was tasty and full of carbs!

  3. Yay for a break!! Enjoy girl!

  4. PIZZA. Always pizza for me!

  5. Good luck at the race! I try to do pizza too, mainly because I can easily eat it after the race too!
