Before the half-marathon

So, thank you all for the advice about my back. I don’t have health insurance right now, so I can’t really go to a doctor. If the pain continues after the half-marathon, when hopefully my COBRA will have kicked in, I will go. I promise. My plan for this week is to do other cardio and take it easy on the running and just run the race as easy as I can. I probably won’t make the time I was aiming for, but I’ve come too far to turn around now.

Here’s what I’m planning on doing this week to prepare:

  • Getting my clothes, gels, running belt, etc. together.
  • Buying letters for my race shirt!
  • Getting together a kickass playlist.
  • Taking a yoga class at some point to stretch out everything that’s tight.
  • Doing a light strength workout on Wednesday with Joel.
  • Foam rolling/stretching/planking after my cardio workouts.
  • Rejiggering my carb-protein-balance to be more carb than the other stuff.
  • No red meat until after the race.
  • No alcohol till after the race.
  • No heels.

Anything else I’m forgetting?
