All of this reading about sucessful marathons has me fired up to start training for my next marathon. Congratulations to Julianne and Aron for amazing PR's and for Dando for running his first marathon. Great job everyone and very inspiring for us all!
I have been researching marathons like mad and I want to train hard for my next one, hopefully in about twelve weeks. I have a bit of a confession. I have never really followed a true plan. Sure I have done 50 mile weeks, done speed work, hills, etc, but I have never really put it all together. This time I plan to follow a plan to a "T" and see how that goes.
I also want to watch my diet. Being 10lbs lighter would definately help me run faster, so I am hereby comitting to watching my diet. I am also participating in the Bootie Buster Challenge. I am curious how it will go if I put it all together!
I feel much better and my voice is returning to normal. I went for a run 10K run yesterday at our indoor track. I had a decent run, although I have lost some of the speed I had before I was sick, but I'm sure it will come back. The almost two weeks I took off was good for me mentally, but I'm ready to go... I really missed running, which is good, I guess.
As for what marathon, I am not telling yet (LOL), but I really want to run them all!! (I have issues, I know). I am eyeing up one in February and two in March.
Today I have not have a workout yet, but I plan to go for a swim in a little while. Hope you all had a great Monday, and thanks for reading.
