Well, I learned how to stretch yesterday at PT after the therapist told me that I failed my flexibility test "miserably." While he was having me bend and contort, I kept hearing these noises from him: "Oh, WOW," "Oooh!," "Oh, yeah, that's bad..." You get the drift. Anyway... I have stretching exercises to do.
In the meantime, here's a funny comic for you:
I'm tired of the marathon. Already.
I'm excited about MY marathon, yes. But I'm tired of marathon updates on facebook and twitter and in the news and it feels like I'm just being completely bombarded by marathon overload and I'm so over it!
I'm being a bitter person by not allowing my friends/acquaintances their first-time marathon excitement because I'm so jaded. And of course, you can probably guess that my jaded-ness comes at least partly out of nerves. And largely out of this stupid rest I'm taking. I didn't need to tell you that, did I?
I know I'll get excited once the subway billboards come up and I have to start making actual arrangements. But in the meantime, don't be shocked if I'm looking at you with boredom when you talk about which gels you prefer, or if I'm rolling my eyes privately as I'm reading about how excited someone was when they did their first EVER!!! 10 or 12 or 18 mile run. I want to be excited and not jaded but I'm too scared about my own race to get rid of my stupid "yeah, been there, done that" bravado.
Hmm... good blog idea: which gels I prefer! Because it's novel when I do it, and annoying when others do. Right?
