Mentally & Physically Prepping for Eugene Marathon

April 4, 2013

T-minus 25 days until Eugene Marathon!  How did THAT happen?  Over the next few weeks, Nicole and I are #EatingCleanUntilEugene and I’m also trying to get extra rest since I can never seem to find enough hours in the day for that.

Here are my April goals to keep me on track until race day!

1. Sleep at least 8 hours each night.

2. Eat healthy to fuel my body with what it needs.

3. Avoid alcohol.  

4. Don’t neglect ice, the foam roller, or stretching.

5. Think positive thoughts!  (I WILL qualify for Boston!  Pain is temporary!  I am an Ironman!  I can do this!)

I have been traveling and extra busy/stressed the past few weeks, so I’m considering this a reboot.

Jeremy & I bought a new Jeep last weekend and took an epic road trip!
