only 4 weeks !! :-s

Oh my goodness ... only 4 weeks to go !!!! Being sick for the past 3 weeks has taken toll on my training. I've only been able to do light workouts and no long walks. Today wasn't the longest I've done in 3 weeks and that was 10km. It turns out I've been fighting a chest and sinus infection for 3 weeks so no wonder I've felt so horrible. I was glad I could do 10k today but I really was hoping for more. Now that I am on antibiotics I'm hoping this week of training will be
Thankfully my chiropractor lives across the street so I got to have a house call for my hip today after my 10k, cause along with everything else I am dealing with, that has been giving me grief too. I'm starting to think my body is trying to tell me something ... something like "what are you thinking doing"

Onwards we go for the next 4 weeks!!! Ughhh I really feel sick to my stomach thinking about it only being that far away !!

Let the countdown begin !!! :-)

tick tock ....

And the clock is ticking... I can't believe it's only 6 weeks to go. I have to say I am freaking out a bit. I've just been hit with a nasty cold which has once again slowed me down a bit. Still not doing bootcamp, just focusing on some core exercises and my walking, walking and more walking.
I was thinking that I probably need to go and buy a new pair shoes to alternate with the ones I have now so they are ready to carry me across the finish line (I really wish someone was going to be there to carry me across ... lol)
We got some bad news that our trainer that is working with us right now isn't going to be going to Greece with us, so that's kind of a bummer. It would have been nice to have someone there that's done this journey with us and knows our strengths and weaknesses. I really hope we get to meet the trainer that's going to be there before we go.

Well we will see how my cold is on Sunday that will determine how far my long walk will be. I forsure think I can do at 10k even feeling like crap .. :-S I will let you know how that goes.

Have a great weekend everyone and once again your support is awesome !!!!

No Bootcamp !!!

Well it appears that I won't be incorporating bootcamp into my training. The constant impact on my foot is too much. We are going to come up with a plan for core training that doesn't involve my feet
I can't believe it's only 2 months away .. yikes !!! We will see how my next 6 weeks go and then decide if I will be able to finish the marathon walking it only or if I will have to give in to the 10k . My heart is still set on the Marathon so I'm relying on my positivity to pull it all together as planned.
Some encouraging words from a friend today in an email she sent :
So shitty about your foot :( you have worked so hard towards this. Regardless, you have done fantastic and completely transformed yourself, so remember that there still has been some huge payoffs! Every little set back you have is just "the old you" trying to win you back and take you down. Don't let it win.

Thanks ... it meant alot !!!Thanks to everyone for your continued support !!!
