2 Out of 4 Ain't Bad... Right!!!

Marathon Training Update

So... last week I was supposed to go running 4 times.  I made it twice.  Well... at lest that's a start.  I ran on Tuesday and Thursday.  This week will be better. 

Tomorrow morning, I am doing my Saturday run of 5 miles in the morning and then back on schedule.

So... Week 2... Here's my schedule.

Monday: 5 Miles (AM)
Tuesday: 3 Miles
Wednesday: 4 Miles
Thursday: 3 Miles
Friday: 2 Miles
Saturday: 6 Miles

If only it wasn't going to average 100+ degrees all week.

Because I Love Halloween

There is 110 days until Halloween. ...  And since I love to dress up, go to costume parties, haunted houses, etc., I've already planned my weekend.  Yes that's right.... 

I'm getting out of town...

In 110 days, I'm going to be in Washington DC....

Which means... there are 110 days until I ran my next marathon. I'm so excited to do this race. It's in Washington DC, it runs past all the national monuments, and it's supporting Safe Kids, plus Kelly's going to try and come and do a 10K race.

Now... to just start training.

So... this gives me actually 15 weeks and 5 days to train.  I can do it.  I keep telling people that they can train and run a marathon in 16 weeks.  So, I'm going to put this to the test. 

I had every intention of going running tonight, but there's a problem when you get home from work and fall asleep for a few hours... but not that deep sleep but the one where you're trying not to sleep but end up sleeping for 1 1/2 hours.

So... this week, this is my schedule:
  • Monday: Rest (apparently take a nap on my couch)
  • Tuesday: 3 miles
  • Wednesday: 4 miles
  • Thursday: Rest (or cross training)
  • Friday: 3 miles
  • Saturday: 5 miles
  • Sunday: NOTHING (maybe go for a walk)

I'm making myself accountable to you.  I PROMISE!!!!
