I WILL OFFICIALLY START MY TRAINING TODAY!!!
Whew--there, now that I have declared it publicly, I WILL, WILL, WILL get my butt motivated and get going! My latest Runner's World magazine came yesterday and got me a little pumped. There were 2 articles (training programs, actually) that caught my attention; one was for your First or Fastest 5K, and the second was a training program for a Marathon.
The 5K article inspired me because on July 11th, I will be running on the course that I currently have my PR on (25:05) and it sure would be nice to break that before I get too old. HOWEVER, I am also sane enough to know that I went into that race (back in 2003) in EXCELLENT condition, so chances of me beating my PR are pretty slim.
The Marathon article inspired me because it was set up by Bart Yasso, an amazingly talented runner. But also, Amby Burfoot is joining in the "challenge"--he has a run/walk method where you run a mile, then walk a minute before running the next mile, etc.
Linda (Lines and Loves) has joined the blogging world this week and has been busily catching us up on some of her recent projects. Linda was a "student" of mine for Class Act, and she has dived head-first into "obsessive quilting" like many of us have done at one time or another. Kindly head over to her blog if you have a moment and drop her a line :0)
The weather is a bit gloomy out right now; maybe I'll head downstairs, even though this is perfect weather to head out and get some gardening done (cool temps, no wind, no hot sun). Nahhh....... I'm more of a SUNNY gardener! Downstairs it is!
Oh yeah...one more thing. It won't be a Happy Thursday for me!! Eww, ickky.....DENTIST TODAY! Ugh, ugh, ugh! I have one tooth that started hurting last week; in I went for a check up on Monday; in I go today to drill out some silver fillings and prep for a Crown. UGH!!! I SERIOUSLY DO NOT LIKE the dentist!!! I'd rather be tarred and feathered!
