Marathon training began today! So far, so good…haaaa. I am so funny! Anyway, I decided to stick with the Marathon Rookie plans after using the half marathon plan. I felt it worked well for me so I am assuming (and hoping!) the full marathon plan will too.
Here it is:
I started today off with a 3 mile run, and I will do my 4 mile run tomorrow. Take Wednesday off. 3 miles again on Thursday and then my long 5 mile run this weekend. I’m already beginning to plan ahead by looking at races that correspond with my training schedule. We’ll see what I sign up for… which reminds me too, I signed up for the Boilermaker again. Yeeaaah!
All of my training runs will be logged on my Garmin Connect site and at dailymile.
Wish me luck!
On the yoga front, I got a full 90 minute PranaVayu Inspired yoga class in this evening. Bliss! Especially after the last week of sharing a bed with my very feverish 6-year-old for four nights. Strep was the culprit, no other symptoms but just the high fevers. It was a long, sleepless week. Sick kid breath is disgusting, by the way.
That’s that. I plan on continuing with my 3-4 times of yoga, and doing one strength training class during the week. I’d like to stick with fit camp on Fridays but I don’t see that always being possible. I’m hoping to avoid injury, focus on my nutrition and getting enough sleep these next 16 weeks.
So, here we go!! Training for my first marathon has begun…. OMG!WhatwasIthinking!!
