I had my last physical therapy session yesterday. I am actually very sad about this as my PT was extremely helpful and it was like I had a personal trainer that also did deep tissue massages and stretched for me. Everyone wished me good luck at my race and sent me on my way.
So Saturday morning at 6:30am, I will be running 13.1 in Myrtle Beach.
I am not nearly as prepared for this one as I was OBX 1/2 Marathon. I have only trained for 5 weeks which is really not good. I think I can do it (at least that's what I keep telling myself) as the course is flat, I have someone to run with, and being in the race atmosphere will get me moving.
After this race, I am going to force myself to not run for the rest of the month and focus on strengthening my legs. I am not 100% pain free (almost, but not quite), and before I start training for anything else, I want to be pain free again. It is so much easier to run without knee pain!
If anyone is going to be in Myrtle this weekend, let me know. I need some words of encouragement!!
