Commence Countdown

I've begun thinking of my race in terms of how many key workouts I have left.

That number is 3.

As in, 3, 2, 1... commence marathon.

1. Today -15 miles with the last 8-10 miles at marathon pace.

2. Saturday- 3 x 2 miles at Tempo Pace with a 1/2 mile steady recovery in between.

3. Wednesday- 8 miles, with the last 3 at marathon pace.

Sunday, April 25th is the Marathon.

...Good thing I'm not thinking of the marathon in terms of how cool Chuck Norris is.


Chuck Norris is so cool he can choke you with a cordless phone.

Chuck Norris Counted to infinity... Twice.

When Chuck Norris does push-ups he pushes the earth down.

Chuck Norris can split the atom. With his bare hands.

Chuck Norris almost got struck by lightning, but then it got scared and swerved.

Chuck Norris doesn't bowl strikes, he knocks 1 pin down and the other 9 faint.

When God said "let their be light," Chuck Norris said "say 'please'".

Put "Chuck Norris" for every answer on your SAT's. You'll score double 800's.

Happy hump day, everyone!


  1. Don't push that Wednesday run; there's nothing you can do that last week except screw things up by not resting.

    Can Chuck Norris throw a punch so hard that Chuck Norris couldn't take it on the receiving end?

  2. Wanted to wish you luck. I'm off to Boston and may not get to wish you luck later. Have a great race!

  3. See how fast the time has gone!! April 25th is just around the are most certainly ready:) I am getting very excited for you Psyche!! I know you are going to rock it:)

  4. I like the workout schedule, so you better be careful that you're not overdoing it! LOL. Isn't it amazing how Chuck Norris makes the crazy of taper week seem so much more sane. For real fun, go to the Google search page and in the search box type in: google chuck norris. Then hit the "I feel lucky" button.

  5. I'm so excited for you...I can't wait to hear all about your marathon!! BTW...are you a Chuck Norris fan, just askin' ;)

  6. Earth Day Challenge, bring it on!

  7. NICE! I totally do that too - count down by the long runs. can't wait to hear how your last 'real' double digit run goes!

  8. Oh man...if I'd only known that last one when i was taking the SATs! Good luck with your last couple of workouts. Enjoy the taper. Then kick some ass.
