Ok, I am finally starting to get nervous about the Marathon. The race is 83 days away!!! Ekkk!

I had a really bad run yesterday... So bad that I called my husband to pick me up 1/2 way through. I set out for 12 miles and only made it 5.68 before giving up. It was misting out and terribly windy. I felt like crap 80% of the time. I was more afraid I was going to ruin my iPhone more than anything as it was getting pretty wet. I waited for Josh outside a coffee shop, freezing and some man was really nice and told me to come in where it was warm. I felt bad because I didn't have any money on me. There are some really nice people out there. I headed to the gym and ran the rest of the miles on the treadmill. It wasn't too bad. I sweated like crazy.

I think my big mistake was doing my first yoga session the day before my 12 mile run (well, I know so). I thought I was pretty flexible, but obviously I am not. I was super sore and my legs felt so heavy even on mile 1. I really enjoyed yoga so right now I am trying to figure out what day is best to do it...or should I start going regularly after the marathon?? I figure it might be good to go on Mondays and after a while, the soreness will definitely go away.

I am scheduled to do a 14 mile run this weekend and I am so scared...this will be my furthest. I'm hoping it's not a disaster. I keep thinking back to when I was training for my first 1/2 and how 8 miles was a big deal...and now it's not hard at all. Maybe some day 14 miles will be a walk in the park? Uggg.
