I'm a bit of a mess right now. I did not have a fun massage this morning. Mark took pity on me and did not do as deep a tissue massage as he probably should have. It was still painful, but I know he was not stripping my muscle knots the way he should have been. On a happy note, he said that my glutes and hamstrings were getting very toned. I can thank my physio therapist Graham for that. He has me doing exercises to strengthen my lower back, glutes and hamstring. I guess it's working! Tonight's physio appointment consisted of a lot of stretching. I was sitting in my car a lot today and by the time I got to physio, I was super stiff!

Tomorrow is my long run. I'm scheduled to do 20K, but I think I'm going to do a 7K loop three times and do a half marathon distance. I'm curious to see what my predicted finishing time will be. I'm going to try to get it over with fairly early. I'll still have to get up around 6:30 so I can eat before hand. Twenty-one kilometers means I have to get some energy into me first thing in the morning.
Thanks to everyone for their lovely comments on my last post. There were a couple of comments where questions were asked, so I'll answer them here. The first one I already answered on the post under the question but thought I'd answer in more depth here in case others were wondering as well.

Salmon, broccoli and mushrooms.
