Running, working out and eating my way to my next marathon!!

VCM 7 Weeks to go!!

on April 6, 2013

So, my training has been going quite well! I did my 16 mile long run on Wednesday afternoon and managed to hold an 11:06 avg pace! Being injured for marathon one really crushed and hopes for a sub-5 hour marathon for me. I still did it and then had to take an entire month and a half off from running (depressing)! It took me around 5:40 to finish and it was very difficult. I think it ended up being around a 13 min/mile pace at the end. I am hoping the lessons I learned will pay off though and I will get a sub 5 and remain uninjured this time. So far so good!!
The excitement of this week for me is that I am running the Cherry Blossom 10 miler with two of my workout friends and am super excited. These girls are the first and only people I have done training runs with and I am really glad we will run together tomorrow. Going to the expo today and looking forward to checking out the vendors and the speakers (Bill Rodgers will be there, maybe we will become besties).
And in more exciting news there are more marathons in the works! I got into MCM!!!! Holy cow it was crazy to register!! And it looks like I will do a couple of half marathons in between with one of my friends. Having only been running for a few years I am amazed with how much I have gotten out of this community of people. It is fantastic.
Well, Sunday I will hopefully make time to check in and recap the Cherry Blossom run. We are going out mostly for fun (not racing it) and some good exercise. Ooooh, maybe I will even post some pictures. Fancy!
