Three Things Thursday

Woo hoo! Thursday!
  1. I didn't run today. I didn't sleep much last night. I had to breathe through my mouth last night and man, it was miserable. 
  2. My lower back is hurting like nobody's business. I have no idea what brought that on. I have difficulty putting my jeans on this morning. I have difficulty getting in and out of the vehicle. I even have difficulty just reaching forward or leaning slightly back. I have difficulty getting up and down a chair. 
  3. My first half marathon will be in 10 days! Ten days. Ten days. Ten days.
    Oooh, please, please, please, please let this back be ok so I can run without pain. Please. Please, Please. I am so ready to run. It like, if you tell me you will give me a medal after I finish running 13.1 miles right now, I will run right now for you. I am as ready as I am about having kids. Yes, I can pop a child out right now. I'm not kidding.

    Happy Thursday! And have a good Friday!


  1. woohoo! and the countdown begins!!! I'm so excited for you girl! I pray that your back feels better soon! maybe you can put salonpas. That always works for me =)

  2. You'll be great. No worries. It's taper time.

    You've done the training. You've got this!

  3. Take good care of your back! You've put all the hard work in now, nothing more you can do - just rest, ice and heat!
    10 days! Whoo hoo! Feel better girlie!

  4. You are definitely ready! Give your back the rest it needs...and ice!

  5. I would suggest you get a professional relaxation massage and tell them about your back. I LOVE my massages and it will help your back and your mind! I hope you feel better soon!

  6. If your back continues to hurt, you should get it checked out... could you maybe have the flu?

  7. Take it easy over next 10 days and get yourself sorted - all the hard work is done you need to concentrate on getting to the start feeling healthy - you will have a great run!!

  8. its almost the weekend. i am so tired. the exhaustion of the half marathon finally caught up to me.

    just take it easy for the next 10 days and u will do great!!! ill be thinking of u!!!

    do some stretches for ur back!! and maybe some breathing yoga exercises. maybe that will help!
