[I’ll post an update on my 30 day challenge soon! As in later today or tomorrow! It’s taken an unexpected shift to say the least.]
So today marks the beginning of my 18 week training plan building up to the Huntsville Marathon. I still haven’t registered. But I did reserve a hotel room in the host hotel. That doesn’t make me nervous. I can cancel if plans change. Yet when I pull up the registration page, my heart beats fast and I get that I’m so nervous!! pre race feeling. The price doesn’t go up until the end of September. So I keep putting it off. Yet if the race happened to sell out I would be 1 mad girl! (do you hear my internal pep talk going on right now?!?! – yes I need to bite the bullet and sign up!!!)
For the past month I’ve been running 4 days a week. For the rest of August I plan to run 5 days week. I’d like to bump that up to 6 days a week some time in September and see how my body handles it. I’m also starting back up speed work and tempo runs – nothing fancy this week – just enough to begin to kick start my fast twitch muscles again!
I’m going to start writing up weekly recaps so that I can have a good record of what is working and what is not working.
