From where I was two weeks ago, I am pleased with how marathon training has started! Yes, I’d like to be running more miles, but jumping back into high mileage weeks isn’t going to get me to the starting line healthy. I’m using the next three weeks to build my base back up, then I’ll start adding more miles/intensity. I’m keeping my miles to the treadmill and the trails right now. I think the cushier surfaces will be good for my ankle and knee. I had 4 wonderful, pain-free miles yesterday morning. I also knocked out my first real run on my new baby. This treadmill, the X11i, is AMAZING.
I always feel conflicted when I wear a brewery hat while working out. Do I drink water or beer? ; )
I write about whatever is going on each day. I want to use this space as a place to document my dissertation and training journeys.
