Three Weeks and Counting

I must apologize for my absence this week, it has been crazy busy.  I am just starting to get caught up on the blogs so I hope I didn't lose anyone!  Anyway, I am not feeling to great today and I am praying that it is not a drive down bug because this could possibly be the WORST timing for that!  Christmas is a few days away, I have to finish up a few more things for work before holidays and I am in the final three weeks of my training for Disney.  Let's hope it all works out. 

Today I met with my training gods, Marci and Moe and managed to get in about 17km in the dome (round and round and round...).  This morning when I woke up I felt a bit funny and nauseous but when we got going, I felt better.  I was banking on 30k+ today and felt pretty good about it early in the run.  At about 10k I started to feel a bit off and by 15km it was awful and I was sure I was going to be sick.  I had some water, a gel, and kept going.  At 17k I had to pack it in because I was sure I was going to lose my lunch on poor Marci (sorry for the graphic details but there really is no dainty way to say it is there??).  This has me a bit stressed as that was to be my third and final 30k + run before the marathon.  Not to mention, this crazy winter weather is making outdoor runs nearly impossible so the bulk of my final weeks will be indoor.  Both Moe and Marci were very certain that I will be ready but I am very nervous...much more than I ever thought I would be.  

Well, I think I will soon head to bed as the toast I had when I got back from the run is also disagreeing with me.  Here's hoping this is nothing more than a 24 bug as I think my children will be devastated to have a wiped out Mommy for Christmas!

I don't know how you crazy kids lasted as long as you did on the track.

Sorry that you're not feeling so hot... at this point, rest and recovery are key.

You ARE ready!

Wow, I have been elevated to running god? :) I hope you are feeling better. You will do great in Disney!

Oh no, I hope you feel better soon! I know what you mean about wanting to get that final long run in before Disney. That's why I bargained with coach on running Christmas Eve when I'm hoping the weather will be a bit more "long run" friendly.

Any idea what corral you will be in or what your bib number is? It would be great to meet you at the start!

I hope that you feel better soon! I am sure you will do fine in the run, sometimes a little nervousness can help!

I really hope you're not coming down with something! Good luck with the last long run! =)
