111 days to go that is. Today is day 1 of my marathon training plan. The goal is the Pensacola Marathon on November 11. I haven’t done anything crazy like registering, but maybe I should. Real life seems to always derail my plans, but I definitely have the marathon fire in me and am ready to take a serious go for it. I have an ambitious goal in mind, but am also going to simply see how the training goes.
The above statement is not an excuse – I am curious how my body will do with my training plan. I also remember last Fall when I got sick for 2 weeks and the kids were all sick and running basically didn’t happen for a month.
In 2008 when I ran 2 marathons, I ran 4 days a week and my training was more fly by the seat of my pants. This time, I am going to run 5 days a week, with speed workouts and tempo runs.
I’ll try to be good about posting progress on how things are going! Also, stay tuned for a recap on my spring 5K races.
