I still found a way to fit in a little exercise though. Around lunchtime Tim and I drove into town for a walk around a pretty neighborhood and a trip to the library. In total I covered about 3 miles, very slowly. And no pictures, because that would take foresight and planning. My bad.
Also, I would consider carrying the books around weight lifting.
Um, hello? Hardcovers = heavy weights. Obviously.
P.S. no laughing about my weak upper body. I swear there used to a little muscle under there....somewhere. Maybe I should try more than just carrying around books?
Anyway, I'm hoping a couple of new books will help distract me the next few days until the marathon. I'm also doing my tough job of carbo-loading. It's not easy eating candy all day and pasta every night, but someone has to do it. Taking one for the team here, guys.
I also have a question for everyone - how do you feel about the whole "running stickers on a car" thing? Don't get me wrong, I'm all for bragging my ass off, just want to make sure I'm not driving around looking like an idiot. So far I've put up my 13.1 sticker that I got for free in a race:
And there is no doubt in my mind that I will stick on a 26.2 sticker as well as soon as it's official.
What's the verdict? Are race stickers a sign of awesomeness or just another way to brag?
I'm curious about this one. I'm cheap, so I probably wouldn't buy one myself. But free stickers are going up! I'm proud of the distances I have covered so far.
What is your favorite "low-key" or easy workout?
Walking is one of my favorite things to do. I really wished today I could have kept going, especially walking with hubby. Such a nice way to chat and enjoy the changing fall colors.
