Death wish

Supposedly, I am going to be running 18K with Dave tomorrow (and Mark if his legs are feeling better). This means one of two things: either I am insane or Dave is trying to kill me. Or both. I can already feel the burn… wish me luck.

In other news, hubby and I have decided to join a gym (again) for the Fall/Winter. We may have legs of steel from all this running, but we’re both feeling pretty ‘squishy’ on our upper halves. I need to tone up my arms, back and shoulders again. Plus, we won’t be able to run outdoors much come winter and we really want to stay in shape. We’re looking in to gyms around our home and plan to join immediately after the marathon… so hopefully we’ll find one with a whirlpool that we can soak in for the entrie week after the race. :)

Run, run as fast as you can…

After that long run last Wednesday (which was actually 13.5, not 13.3 – woohoo!) I had a 4 day hiatus due to festivities surrounding my brother-in-law and new sister-in-law’s wedding. CONGRATS YOU GUYS!

Jumped right back on the wagon last night and did a steady 9 KM run with Mark. First half took it slow but gunned it for the last couple KM’s, UPHILL! Felt great.

Baseball tonight, short run tomorrow, baseball Thursday and a looooong run with our buddy on Friday. Aiming for 18 KM… we will see.

T-Minus 6 weeks

Well, as of this weekend, it’s 6 weeks til race day!

I’m runnnig as much as I can, but this has got to be the busiest summer EVER! I’ve been away the last two weekends, this weekend my brother-in-law is getting married and next weekend I am playing in a softball tourney all weekend. And then it will be September already! It’s hard fitting in the long runs during the week, but the good news is, I ran 13.3 KM last night! Too it slow at an average pace of about 6:30/KM and finished in 1 hour, 27 mins.

Aiming to add about 2 KM’s per week and hopefully we’ll be ready for the big 21.2 on the 30th of next month.

Thanks for reading. :)
