Three Things Thursday - Summer Fun Edition

It's Thursday again ... already! Here's the latest at I Have Run:
  1. This week marks the start of marathon training, sixteen weeks until I tackle that 26.2. However, I am a still a little in recovery mode - recovering from my half marathon and the cold that took me out all weekend. I still hack up a lung a few times a day but am on the mend overall. I finalized my marathon training plan. It is too big to stick the whole thing on here as a post, but I will let you know the plan week by week. I've had a few people ask if I am going to share it, so let me know if you want me to email you a copy. It is a modified version of the FIRST marathon training plan.

  2. Summer has officially begun at our house. We made a list of fun summer things we want to do and we are marking things off left and right. Because all the fun kind of messes with our eating and napping schedules some days, I am thinking of getting up to do my runs at 6 am. It's only an hour (or some days less) earlier than I get up normally, so it shouldn't be that big of an adjustment. However, I do like every minute of sleep I can get. Next week is going to be my trial run. We'll see how it goes.

  3. The pics from Saturday's half marathon were posted. Here is what I wish I had felt like and how I looked when I knew the photographer was taking my pic:

Here is how I really felt:

I also added a picture to my race report if you want to venture back a post. Hope you are having a great week. Tomorrow's Friday!

RUN: I have only run once this week, but it felt so good to get my legs moving. I have another run planned for this afternoon after my lunch has digested and then eight miles on the schedule for this weekend.


  1. Good luck on your run this afternoon and happy marathon training!!!!!

  2. Good luck on your marathon training! And you'll be glad you're getting up earlier as it starts to heat up! If it ever does, that is!

  3. Congrats on getting the training underway! I'm both excited for you and deeply jealous.
    I hope the early-morning running works out for you. Hard to beat watching the sun light up the sky, and finishing up a tough workout while most folks haven't even started their day. Big bonus around here with the AM runs is that the air quality is still good. Air starts to get kinda thick in the middle of the day in the middle of summer.

  4. Yay for marathon training! I'm glad someone else will be training in this heat with me!

    I think you look great in both pics - my face in the "how I really felt pics" is red and puffy and I look like I may fall out at any moment!

    Great job!
