1. Technically my 18-week training began on 26 December 2010, but it didn't really feel like it started until I'd had my first clinic night last Thursday. So, as of today, I'm one week in. Sunday's long run (only 10km) was great. Good weather, met some new people, and ran at a pace I didn't know I could sustain. The calendar I printed out with my run and core/strength/stretch schedule is up on the bulletin board. I'm proud to say that I've ticked off "yes" on everything I've had planned. We'll see how that goes this weekend since I'm working on Sunday (long run day) and now need to move a couple of things around to get my 13kms in.
2. I signed up for Tall Mom's 1000+++ challenge this year. That's running over 1000 miles in 365 days. Do-able, yes. Especially since I'm aiming for 1250 (2011kms). It will be nice to have some accountability. Click the picture if you want to see what it's all about or if you want to join!
3. Core/strength/stretch is kicking my butt. I know I need it, but wow. I have it on my schedule 4 times/week and am hoping that if I can't do all 4 days I'll at least get in 2-3. Thankfully after 3 sessions I'm not hurting as badly as before. Deciding to start at 10:30pm the night before a long run = bad idea. I could barely walk on Monday. Colin, as he did the day after my first bootcamp, thought it would be funny (harhar) to tickle, poke and generally torment me.
