Yes, I am still alive and well but again, life has taken over.
I am still on track for my marathon training and I am happy to report that I have now gone 5 days, including one weekend without drinking! My commitment to clean at least this part out of my system for my marathon is proven to be successful so far :)
Thank god I can make my favorite drink with no vodka!
Maybe I'm on to something here :)
I had a little crazy moment this weekend and emailed Coach K to know why I wasn't running as much anymore! I know the concept of tapering but I didn't except to feel so lost!
I was reassured that these feelings were normal and that come race day, my body will be grateful and I will let the leopard in me come out and play!!

During the next few weeks, I will spend some time doing positive thinking and visualizing the race. I plan on seeing the course possibly this weekend and get to know it a little better. I hear its flat but I want to see it for myself :)
In case you wonder what I did this week in terms of training, here it is:
Monday: An amazing weight class that I am still feeling!
Tuesday: Rest day
Wednesday: 6K run this morning; loved being to run as the sun was coming up :)
Here's what is on the agenda for the rest of the week:
Thursday: 7K Tempo Run
Saturday: 10K run
Sunday: 20K run
Now I am off to bed for another early night as I have a nagging feeling I am getting a cold. Hopefully, sleep is the answer!
What do you suggest I do with all the free time I will have in my last week of training before the marathon?
