In fact, I was so distracted by the fact that I'd finished my training plan, that I forgot to take a towel when I went to shower at the gym. Let me spell this out for you a little... the towels are next to the water fountains in the big room with the equipment and cardio machines. Why they aren't in the locker rooms, I do not know. Yet it wasn't until 1/2 way through my shower that I realized, "Oh shit, I never took a towel."
So yeah, my giddiness in finishing training went away quickly when I had to pull my sweaty clothes back on to my soaking wet body and run back out in the middle of the gym, dripping wet, to grab a towel. Woops.
|With my running plan... nothing but race day left!|
For dinner tonight I had lots of water, some pasta with a pesto sauce I'd bought ages ago, spinach, and toast. I still had some of that yummy baklava left over so that was my dessert.
The pesto wasn't that great. I bought it at this awesome place in New York City called Eataly months ago. I expected it to be somehow different... I love anything with truffles so I had high expectations, but they just didn't meet. Which was sort of a bummer. But the bread and spinach and whole meal together, was great. And ya know what was even better? I think for the first time in a long, long time I ate an indulgent meal filled with carbs without the slightest bit of guilt or remorse. Yum.
I've got to finalize packing and head to bed. Flight at 6:00 a.m.!!! :)
