I had a wonderful workout at the pool last night. I can feel the good kind of soreness all over. We did several different types of aqua jogging exercises last night:
-The classic running in water
-Running with hands out of the water (think bank robbery style), which is a killer core strengthener
-Knee to opposite elbow
My legs felt like noodles after, and I slept pretty darn well. I have decided to go to the pool at least once a week–today I feel so strong! I think this will be a fabulous cross-training, particularly in the summertime.
Last night I had a dream that I was four hours late for the half marathon, and I was scrambling to get there and try to run it before the course shut down. Of course getting to the start was not easy! I had to take several ferries, and when I got to the final bridge, it was incomplete and I had to swim part of the way to the start line. I woke up before I ever made it there.
So, note to self… set two alarms for Sunday morning 🙂
Tonight I am going to make sure (and double, then probably triple-check) that my bag is packed with all of my clothing, my running shoes (of course!), my body glide, GU for fuel, and my iPod. So excited about this race and the weekend to come.
