Ok, so I think I have lost my mind!! For some reason, I thought it would be a swell idea to sign up for a marathon in October. Not only am I training for a half marathon in August, I am not training for a full in October… What is wrong with me!!
Monday: 4 miles
My first thought when I checked the mail was, “Yes, my watch is back!!” But after running, I am a little concerned with it’s accuracy. I usually run on state trials that are marked. According to the trials, my four miles should have been done at .3 mile marker. But according to my watch, I was done between .1 and .2 mile marker… Talking with some other runners, they said if I run in an area with a lot of tree covers, then sometimes the watch has a difficult time finding a signal.
Has this happened to anyone else? Or is my watch broken.. again..
Tuesday: 4 Miles
Ran with lifetime run group today and had the perfect run with great conversations. This group is highly addictive, I love it!! Slow pace today, one of my favorites 🙂
Wednesday: 3 miles
Another easy run. I ran with four amazing women who I am sure I will get to know very well by the end of our journey. This was the start of my Marathon training.. Oh my!! What have I gotten myself into?
Thursday: 2 mile run
While dad and my oldest went fishing, I had a couple miles to put in. My run was disgraceful!! I ran around my neighborhood which was a little hillier than I am used to. And pushing an extra 50 pounds.. The first mile was too fast and the second was a joke. Really, this run just sucked! Runs like these make me think I won’t make it come October.
Saturday: 6 Mile run
Good day to run by the lakes. I’m not sure if it was the heat or the extra day of running, but my thighs were tight and the run wasn’t exactly easy. I’m glad I did it but I’m really excited for a day off.
Total Milage: 19
This week was not the best. I am really scared about running a full marathon and think I might have jumped the gun on doing so. The top of my left knee hurts and my thighs are still really tight. I think I am going to need to spend more time with my foam roller..
