Wow that was a great break! I decided to take a little break from not only running but from the blog as well. This gave me some much-needed time to catch up on some yard work, some reading( I finally finished The Girl On The Train and it was fantastic), and I also got to hang with my wife and daughter. It was a great two weeks.
No that it is over, I started getting back to work. Training for my marathon is now in full swing. I have my schedule all laid out and my runs planned. I am ready. Monday started my first day of training with my usual 6 am crossfit class. I love my crossfit family. They are so encouraging and always push me to be my best,
Today my alarm went off at 5 am and I put on my sneakers and went for a nice 3 mile jog around the neighborhood. It was great to watch the sun come up and to have my miles in before breakfast was an added bonus.
The next few weeks are going to be crazy. I am putting in 6 days of training a week and at the moment I have a burned calorie goal of 800 a day. This goal will increase every week by 25 calories. Its been a lot of measuring and planning to make this training plan work but I know I can do it if I stick with it.
Wish me luck as I become a true marathon runner!
