I started training for the Disney Marathon today!!! I was technically set to begin this 18-week program next week, but I just couldn't wait any longer so I'm adding on this week. I think it will work out well, because this is my first week back to classes, and I really wanted to integrate my running schedule from the beginning. Here's what my tweaked training schedule looks like...
I am VERY excited to start this program. I feel ready for the training, and I know it will be good for me in a lot of ways. I wore my new shoes this morning, and they felt great!
I was also able to run the entire way. This is usually not a big deal (especially for only 3 miles!), but I ran my crazy neighborhood hill route. I will typically walk a few minutes when I run hills, but this morning I really wanted to attack the run! I definitely feel strong (despite my record low August miles), and I'm so happy to have started my marathon training so well.
Here I am this morning (pre-run) in my Disney Training Shirt...
Time: 31 minutes, 46 seconds
Miles this Week: 3
Miles this Month: 28
