Hello there and happy Friday!
A few of you have said that you might want to take up running - BRAVO! If you look down to the right of this blog, there's three different links for training.
If you are a beginner and never really ran before, start with the About.com link to run 30 minutes in 3 weeks.
Once you've got that, move on to the 1/2 marathon training guide.
If you are already an expert runner and considering going for the real deal - the bottom link is a 26 mile marathon training guide.
So decisions, decisions.
My running buddy Angela, just told me she's going for a full marathon on Dec. 5th in Vegas - It's called, "the Rock n Roll" marathon.
Anyhoo -- I'm really, really tempted to sign up for the full. I mean what an enormous challenge - it would be a huge feat to go from barely being able to run for a minute in February to running a full marathon in under a year.
I don't know what I want.
I mean for all my BS yesterday with Want VS Can't... JEEZE am I being challenged.
I am afraid of failure, I am afraid of it hurting, I am not sure I can commit to any type of long run day that would equate to five or six hours of running. OMG! Yet, there's a nagging voice, somewhere... maybe it's from hell for all I know but this voice is saying, "Go for it." And then there's the voice that is saying - "what are you nuts?" But then again, that voice told me I was nuts when I decided to run 13.
Sigh. I've got to give this some thought.
In the meantime, I decided to do an easy 2 miles today. It was a fun run and my best pace (4.9 - sooo close to that 5.0 or better I'm striving for!)
