The excitement builds
The excitement is starting to build!! Did my last training run of 10kms this morning, so the training is all completed!!!
Got attacked by a mirror yesterday. We only have one full length mirror which is basically a pane of mirror, not fastened to anything & it lives down the side of the freezer. I lift it out when I need to use it & lean it up against something. As I pulled it out yesterday, it slipped, the corner which was already chipped smashed into my thigh on the way down then the whole thing smashed onto the floor!!!
I've got 2 x 25mm long parallel cuts on my inner (ish) right thigh down towards my knee & a bit of a bruise as well. I immediately covered it with tissues & bound it, not wanting to look. I made plumbing boy check it out about 10 minutes later - no stitches required thankfully!!! It's still a bit tender, but didn't bother me on the 10km this morning thankfully.
Race bag is packed & we are staying in the city for the weekend as it's also my birthday tomorrow & we're going out to a fancy restaurant for dinner. I haven't had an alcoholic beverage for a week or so & am planning on having a couple tomorrow night to celebrate, then water til Sunday post marathon!!!!
I think I'm ready!!!!!
