This is what the first three weeks for training for my first marathon looks like. I’ve had good runs and bad runs, but I know that as I press on the good ones will outnumber the bad and that it will all be worth it when I cross the finish line. There was time when I didn’t think I could do a half. Now I have done several of those and consider that mileage to be routine. I am sure I will have to eat those words at some point, but I was ready for a new challenge.
So far so good I guess. I’ve been doing a pushup challenge that has three workouts a week. It is the 100 pushups workout (http://hundredpushups.com). I’ve done it before, but never made it to the end. I definitely think it is pretty effective. At the moment, I am really needing to focus and regroup regarding my stretching and nutrition. Food has been a complete free-for-all lately. I am hoping to make this week much better. I found a great set of yoga stretches for runners and will be working to use those as my mileage increases.
Crossing my fingers that I don’t wreck my husband’s Harley while he is 8,000 miles away!
