Nothing.  Laid on the couch after cleaning house at 9:30.  woke up startled at 1:45.  Had to go pick the kids up from school.  No time to run.  I should be able to squeeze one in tomorrow.  I have resigned myself to 5 days a week.  I have fought for 6 but right now with my schedule, packing and preparing to move, and worsening sleep deprivation, it's not happening.  I quit getting up the extra hour early to run between night shifts--it gave me 4 hours of sleep instead of 5, and I was falling asleep at the wheel bringing the kids to school.  So, sleep has won.  I believe towards the end of February after the dust has settled after moving my schedule will loosen up and I will be able to resume normal training.  Until then, I will run when I can and try to stay in basic shape.  I'm on the fence about a spring marathon--will wait and see.  All racing plans are on hold for now.  No worries, I have not given up.  I still plan to kick some tail in a fall marathon.  This will pass.

8:07 AP.  Warning:  TMI.  I am super bloated and over-emotional today.  The girls are sore and monstrously huge, so I finally dragged my fluid-laden body off the couch and engaged in an epic battle to get my 12 sizes-too-small sports bra on.  After I had it on in a manner in which it gripped my rib cage like a vise to prevent any effective ventilation, I got my nice stretchy elastic shorts on, pulled socks over my edematous ankles, and lumbered my 2-ton body through 8 miles on the dirt roads, where, I was hoping, nobody would see me.  I was mostly successful, but one person waved, so I hope it's not because they knew me.  Now I'm going to eat salad, bake cookies, and perhaps engage in diuresis by means of cheap beer.

8:30 AP.  Nice and easy. Right achilles is a little angry. Not good. Today's

music selection was a hodgepodge of Korn, Air Supply(go ahead and

laugh), Bon Jovi, Duran Duran, Jewel, and some more Cranberries, because

I am on a Cranberries kick.

We moved Saturday and I was going to run but when I laid down for a few minutes to rest because I was exhausted I woke up Sunday morning.  I hate moving.  But it's done. 

workout 1:  treadmill in the garage is LOUD and my husband leveled it with a wooden spoon under 1 corner because the house has settled a bit.  10 minute warm up 8:34 pace.  10 x 1 minutes 5:56 to 5:27 pace with one minute recover. 10 minute cooldown.--5.13 miles

workout 2:  1.65 miles 7:39 pace to post 11.  4 miles with Heidi about 10:00 pace, then 1.65 miles home 7:16 pace.--7.3 miles

10 miles dreadmill 8:34 pace then p90x plyometrics.  Plyo has nothing on distance runners cardio-wise but my thighs were burning.  Maybe it will help with leg strength, since my legs give out way before my lungs and heart do.

7:25 AP.  I am running the Psycho Wyco 50K on February 11th.  12,000 feet of elevation change by way of wicked rolling hills.  Should be muddy and incredibly difficult, and I'm undertrained, but somehow I am really looking forward to this and feel strong.
