Is marathon training really starting all over again?
Yup. Damn you, NYC Marathon lottery.
The goal: A 4:15 or so marathon that’s strong, fun and evenly paced.
The plan: 4 runs a week, 1 strength-training session a week, 1 60 minute yoga session a week.
Training will begin on Sunday, July 20. Until then, I want to stay loose and stay in shape.
I need to remember: To foam roll and stretch more.
I am so glad Midsummer’s Night Run is back on the spit!
I’ve run the island twice before as part of the Island Girl Half-Marathon relay with Jill, but have never done this race. Looking forward to it!
Andie and I agreed that a half-marathon in late September would be good training. Since the boyfriend’s parents live in Oakville, this is an easy solution! (Word on the Street is the same day, but I think I can do both – this race has a 7:45am start.)
I still find it ridiculous and amazing this is actually happening. I just hope I don’t hate running once it’s all over.
