I went for a nice 4-mile on Tuesday. It was not one of my exceptional runs (one of those where you think you're going really fast and then you look at your watch) but I was happy with it as my recovery run from Sunday's 10-miler. I was scheduled to run last night, but bumped it to today as my right knee feels a little tweaky. Looking forward to a brisk (record low temps! It's November and it's finally chilly!) run tonight, and an 8 mile this weekend.
But hey, this week has been crazy. First Wednesday Art Walk on Wednesday, plus our organizations's Annual Meeting, lots of other meetings, working on some fun side projects and waiting for Friday...yay Friday! I'm ready for some R n' R.
26.2 with Donna website and various other marathon training articles and sites, including new favorite, The Marathon Virgin column from Runner's World. I haven't officially made up my mind, but I'm not sure I can keep up with this wishy-washy stuff much longer. I think I'm there. I think I'm ready to commit. It probably shouldn't be such a huge decision, except I never in my life thought I would be able to do something like a marathon. And to think and I know that I can do it, that I have the chops and the toughness to get through it is key for me.
Molly from I'm a Sleeper Baker posted a great quote about marathon training that I loved:
"Have faith in yourself and your ability. You might have some rough moments, and that's when you have to dig deep down and believe in yourself. Be confident because you can do it."
Big Daddy Diesel shared this one: “You have to have confidence in your ability, and then be tough enough to follow through.” Rosalynn Carter
