I made my goal! I told you on Friday that I would have my plan done by the end of the weekend. It was done last night (Sunday night, just didn't have time to write a post). I'm so excited that my training plan is finally complete! Whew! After
weeks months of looking at plans, printing plans, talking about plans, I now have what I feel is a good plan for The Cleveland Marathon. Thank you Nathan, for helping me put it together! It's an 18 week plan and it started today. EEK! I made the mistake of adding up all the mileage for the plan. Yeah, that freaked me out a little bit. Taking it week by week, though, it's not quite as intimidating. Sure, some weeks will be hard and tiring, but as a whole, they don't freak me out. I think that should be a sign to myself that if I take it one mile at a time, I will be fine, right? One thing is definitely clear, though, I need to start going to bed earlier so I can get up and get my morning miles in! Cleveland Marathon, here I come!
Today's training called for 6 miles with 4 at marathon pace. DONE! Feels really good to start off my training strong. Let's just hope I can keep it up!
