If y'all watched the marathon trials, what'd y'all think? I was nervous/excited for the runners, and was 100% ready when the broadcast started. But it was NBC. They leave a lot to be desired, frankly, between the commercials and commentators getting facts wrong. I'm so happy Meb made the team, and I'm bummed that Kara finished 4th. She couldn't make up the distance at the end, but I think she still had a great race. A great way to forget New York 2014. I'm on the fence about Galen Rupp simply because he still wants to do the 10k. If he's not ready to let that event go, then don't run in the trials and take a spot away from someone who would be fully focused on the marathon.
It was some serious snuggle time with this girl, even if she didn't care about the race :-p I also got plenty of snuggles with that valentine on Sunday.
I was able to get my 3-mile run done Saturday morning before the trials, even with a scar tissue flare up with .5 to go. I got all 3 miles done, so I'm still on schedule, and I have another sound wave therapy session today. I'm also thinking I need another medical massage on my calves because they're feeling tight again. Last time I had some good bruises from the massage, on both calves.
The rest of the weekend was really lazy. Sunday I finished up errands and went to Pure Barre. For the first time, I forgot my socks, so had to buy another pair. Oops. I'm not the only one to have done that though. I've heard even the instructors have done that. I always make sure I have my socks and yesterday did not check first. Now I have two pairs and can alternate.
