Felling Better (Mentally and Physically)

Today I had a good run to get my spirits back up about the race.  I'm still having some discomfort around my left hammy and after only running 3.5 miles last Sunday I had been feeling down about the possibility of not running the marathon.  I felt some discomfort but no pain so I think the foam roller is helping to work it out.  I'm still going to call my doctor to get a sports therapist to check it out.  Hopefully on Friday.  Today’s run was only 7.5 but it was a good run which I needed more mentally than physically.  I did 1:1 run/walk and still had a 12:14 pace, which suprised the heck out of me.  I was going really slow… or so I thought.  I ran around the neighborhood and it turned out to be an excellent day for a run.  I was hot though, as I wore my jacket.  Still going to take it lightly this week and we'll see about my 20 miler next weekend.  That's the last chance for a long run before the race. 

We had our new fridge delivered yesterday and it is nice!  We bought an open box item from Best Buy and besides a few small dints, we got a $1300 fridge fro only $900!  We also picked up some under cabinet lighting which looks nice.  I still need to mount all the wires out of site but the lights are up and running.  We still need to pick out a new dishwasher soon as we’ve disconnected ours already. Once it’s all done I’ll post pics!  

Off for a nap with the boy!
