    Early Days Training – literally…

    Funny how I’m about to run a marathon in 4 weeks and I feel totally out of shape.  Many people would look at me and think I’m crazy unless you are a runner.  7 months ago I ran a PB marathon with an average pace of 5:19min/km for 42.2km.  I went for a 8 km run this week and thought I was going to pass out at a 5:35min/km pace.  So funny (or not) how my slow run pace turns into my new tempo.  I just keep telling myself that I just have to get the mileage in the next 4 weeks because my “goal ” is Boston.  As my online coach from Adidas Nicole says “my real training begins the week after Disney”.   Yes, Adidas has given me an online coach.  I actually had time to google her today.  Wow a PB  marathon at 2:32 – this girl knows how to run!

    My road to Boston has learned to start early.  I have two great running partners Lisa and Jennifer that run at 5am – yes really 5 am!  I’ve joined them 3 times the last couple of weeks.  As much as I dislike that alarm at 4:45am, it feels great to have my run done and not having to worry about finding the energy or motivation to run after the kids are in bed.  Tomorrow morning I’m hitting the road for another long run.  I hope to burn off enough calories for my Christmas cookie exchange tomorrow night…
