Marathon Training–Week #1

 

The Good

  • I actually stuck to the plan.
  • I drank over 100 oz of water each day.
  • After much contemplation I have narrowed down to two marathon in early winter, the Miami ING or the Disney Princess Marathon.
  • I actually got up early Saturday morning to run at 5:15.
  • I didn’t take any shortcuts during the run..I ran the ENTIRE 6 miles in MIDTOWN Atlanta. We ran through Atlantic Station, Georgia Tech, Piedmont Park and back to Colony Square.
  • I have committed to coming back next week..for now

The Ugly

  • I sweated like a pig.
  • I wanted to throw up every time a new hill cam upon me.
  • I ended up walking more than running since I hadn’t ran more than 4 miles since the Publix Half Marathon.
  • My BodyGlide worked ( I also used a bit of diaper rash for those spots).
  • I’m still not convinced that I want to do a marathon but I will continue to train.
