Marathon week is finally here......

Sunday, April 25, 2010

So I have been a little complacent for the last two weeks and really have not blogged about my weekly plan. Overall I have been doing okay and still continued to track my food everyday but one. This is an important week for me. This is marathon week. So for that reason, I need to be disciplined.

Here is my plan for the week. Just for fun I will also update the weather forecast for race day with each new day. Lets see if out of all the predictions, the meteorologist can get it right. I mean seriously, wouldn't you love to have his job. You can be wrong 95% of the time and still get paid emoticon
