I’m doing it….marathon training…it’s official…

5 May

..feeling hopeful! Have an awesome programme from Dave…I keep thinking if I just follow it faithfully I will have fun doing my virgin marathon in November. It just goes to show, I actually need someone telling me what to do. Yesterday, I did a new weights workout at the gym, followed by an easy 5k run last night. Today, I have a rest..which I am gonna take because on Wednesday I have a short 17k run. So it will be “Hello 5.30 mornings!” once again. (I need to get out early to get back home early to wake the kids up before 7am. They all leave at 8am, then Paloma and I leave about 8.20.) I have not run a 17 k distance since my last half marathon about one month ago…
My other plan is to lose 7kg by November the first, so I will go extra extra fast. Oh…by the way, remember me blogging about the thin woman that won the tussock traverse? Well, she is the same skinny chick that won the Rotorua marathon last weekend! I still think she is too thin though…..
