I knew I had the Carmel Marathon coming up in April, but for some reason that seemed like months away. It just hit me that April is not that far away, and the marathon is exactly 12 weeks away!
Most training plans are 17-20 weeks long. Since this will be #7, and I'm not really a 'beginner', hopefully I'll be ok though. So training starts again this week. (I'll be starting with week 9)
Since my last marathon in November, my mileage has been pretty low.
44 miles in Dec., and only 19 so far for January. Pitiful, I know.
Taking a break coincided perfectly with Winter. I hate running outside in the cold.
I use my treadmill a lot in the winter, but haven't been using it much at all lately.
I have still been strength training once a week with a trainer, and I also started back to weekly spin classes, which I LOVE.
As for Weight Watchers, I did not count one point last week. It was a very stressful week, and I just didn't have the energy to count points. In fact, I had a couple days where I said forget it, give me all the food, I don't even care!
Why can't I be one of those people who don't eat when they're stressed?
In other news, I put my name into the NYC marathon lotto. What a dream it would be to run that!
Who else entered NYC?
Are you training for anything?
