Today’s run: 3 miles
Music: Blackmill Radio (Pandora)
This morning felt like early fall; the ground was wet from all of the rain, things were gray, I could smell leaves burning somewhere in the distance. (I love that smell.) It was unseasonably warm, too. At least I didn’t have to wear gloves this time.
So yes, it’s the official start of training! Last week definitely got me warmed up. While I felt great after this Saturday’s 5 miler, things started out a little “blah” this morning. It could have been that once I noticed the rain had stopped, I jumped into my running clothes with both eyes barely open, chugged a cup of water and rushed out the door. About halfway through my body warmed up and it actually became enjoyable. I finished with a time of 30:54 (and that includes about 2 minutes of a brisk walk). Not too shabby.
So, courtesy of Marathon Rookie, this is my 16-week training schedule:
So I was lucky enough to run in warm, dry weather this morning…but the forecast for Wednesday is also calling for rain, so we’ll see what I end up with. If you’re running today, good luck, push through, fast or slow nothing feels better than knowing you finished.
