- 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.
- 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.
- 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:
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.
