I have a day off today from my training schedule to get my body slightly rested for my last big time long run before the marathon. I have a 20-miler to complete tomorrow morning. EEK.
There is no reward without pain, so I am getting ready for the hurt. I love this commercial from Nike using a cover by Johnny Cash of Nine Inch Nails song "Hurt". It shows the ups and downs of sports. Not everything is a victory march. Especially the guy throwing up mid-run. Bring on the hurt. Well...maybe not. 22 days!
