Wednesday training update.

Are these annoying yet? Deal with it, it's only three more weeks or so. (YIKES!)

I have actually been staying pretty close to my training schedule with the exception of Wednesdays. I'm supposed to cross-train on Wednesdays. For whatever reason, I have a really difficult time getting up to go to the gym. I try to fit in some extra walking, but rarely do I make this day up.

One good thing: I ran 3.5 miles without stopping for a walk break on Sunday. That's the farthest I have ever run in my entire life, and definitely something about which I've been patting my back. I triumphantly told this to one of my coworkers who replied, "Good job. You know you have to run another mile and a half on top of that for the Shuffle, right?" What a dick.

I am usually able to do my runs outside without a walk break (not including the times I have to stop for a stoplight which are not significant). However, when I run on the treadmill, I just cannot run my distance without taking walk breaks. I suspect it's boredom-related. YOU try running while only able to watch morning news shows or infomercials.

In any event, I keep plugging along. Stay tuned for next week's update: Training with jet lag!

  1. Congrats! I've never run a race but I think the momentum and crowd, etc help carry you along for the last bit. One of my BFFs is a serial marathon runner and her training never goes above 22 miles, even though a marathon is longer. You'll do great!
