Slow walking and stopping to dads office for lunch

slept really good lastnight....the first shock of your feet hitting the ground is the hardest once the shuffle starts it better. Knee still really swollen and ITBand is a mess but will rest it for a bit. Popped some more blisters under the big toe nails last night to take some pressure off feels much better! Got my nasty clothes washed and think I'll take a really slow walk around town...suns out and its warm think that will feel good but Im wearing slides!! 

Its amazing how much time was spent non moving on my garmin....after each lap I hit stop and reset and tried to remember to hit start immediately before walking into the cabin to my HQ bag since I knew that time would be factored into my entire lap time for watching the clock...of course my initial goal was get in get out dont waste time. Well blister taping, changing shoes, socks, shirts, getting IT band wrapped a couple times and the PT trying to roll it some...OUCH. At night time finding someone to hold something up somewhere to change into dry bra (didnt want to scare the kids that were in the main cabin!!) stopping for a stretch on the bridges - just so many factors that take time and the clock ticks! Total non moving time on the garmin was over 3.5 hours.....prolly a little more as I know for a fact I forgot to reset the garmin twice I know when I switched from the 910 to the 405 so I could let the 910 recharge during that lap I forgot to hit start until I started lap 5 so i was like damn now my pace for this lap is gonna look like ive done it faster since I forgot to start it...the lap begins as soon as I cross the timing chip not when I leave HQs. I have no regrets my goal was to finish....I had one major battle with the ITband that almost knocked me out....thanks to Trixie and Amber who helped me get thru that dark dark time and Thanks to the OXY's that got me thru the night and the last loop!! I'll make a report soon on my blog...what a ride!!!!!

Holy Shit Balls.....I leave in the am!!!! Have been icing and stretching the hammies and glutes and hip feeling about 50% better so hoping by saturday to be a little better then that.....then maybe the pain wont start till about mile 20 and will only have 80 to fight it.....thinking of the positives!!! Emotions are up and down, self doubt comes in then I tell it to kiss my ass. I question why did you decide you wanted to do 100 miles....and I answer because you want to see if you can. I question and know its gonna hurt but I look at the 3 50's I did last year and even though they hurt and I would ask myself could you go another 50 the answer was no but I did find out thru my mentor and idol marshall Ulrich that those are all normal thoughts that he never ever thinks after a 50 he could go further he just does. I know my training has had some low miles trying to get things to heal which I do feel will help in the long run I hope.....I feel if I didnt let things recover some there is no way i could even toe that line on Saturday.....hell the 8 miles last saturday was terrible pain in the ass and hammie and I just thought fuck u gotta go 92 more miles next week. This month was some solid training Im glad i had the 2 weekends in a row with the 20 sat 30 sun and the following weekend with the double marathons plus added walking after that sundays marathon. I know many folks with lots less training who have finish their 100, i know people with much more training then I who have not. There are tons and tons of training plans and according to some my training was fine and according to others it was too low....Im going with those that is was fine!!!!  My mind still cant help but think about the time involved and getting tired, sleepy tired but I'll deal with it one lap at a time, one aid station at a time and fight with my heart for the finish line.

Oh and i have a big zit on my chin???

What an evening went to the dairy bar with a friend this evening and as he was walking the food back to the car I rolled down the window to grab some out of his hands the window that was busted out and fixed a couple months ago-haven't had to roll it down before well it won't go back up and of course nobody is open and I'm leaving at 7:30am. A friends ex owns a body shop and they r going to try to get it up around 7am for me...if not hoping mom will let me use her car. Came home started foam rolling and Andi the dog trompled all over my head and his leg busted my eye-immediately it became the size of a large marble and it looks like I may be running my first 100 miler with a black eye!!! Love it
