I had typed something and it got erased. Boo. Nothing exciting, I woke up feeling really sick to my stomach and skipped spinning. Last nights massage was awesome. Mindy will be here in a few days and I am super pumped! She's my bestie.

Since I overslept, today will probably end up being a rest day b/c we have an appt with our financial planner tonight. Fun stuff.

Next week starts my official HIM training!!!! I decided to go with a plan I got from Beginner Triathlete. Hopefully it works out okay. It will be hard to balance out the marathon training and this plan, but hopefully I'll be smart and listen to my body! I only have 2 - 20 milers left before the marathon, so I'll just take it easier those days. Now I need your opinion - is it a really bad idea for me to do my first duathlon the week before my marathon? My running schedule calls for a 12 mile run that day, so would it be okay to do a 3 mile run, 12 mile bike, 3 mile run instead and call it even?

You should be fine doing the du before your marathon. Just get lots of rest afterwords and the week before the marathon.

Good luck with all that training. I think you'll be fine to do the dualathon before the marathon, you'll know for sure when the time comes though!
