I have a few funnies for you today. First off, I saw one of my best workout buddies today at lunch after church and for the first time ever (I think!?!) I saw her in regular clothes. We see each other about 5 times a week if not more than that, and we are always sweaty and nasty and working out. It was kinda different to see her in normal clothes. I think it was the first time for her as well because she sent me a text after we saw each other.
At lunch today we celebrated a birthday...we do this about every week. Its a big family. I didn't really have intentions of working out today but I have a weigh in tomorrow and I really enjoyed my cupcake so I was able to squeeze in a 45 minute session before work today. It was not much but I burned some calories and enjoyed my cupcake...that's a pretty good day I think.
Tomorrow some changes take place in my workout schedule. I will officially begin my 20 week marathon training plan. I have been preparing for this for about 2 months now. I have been trying to build up my stamina and my mileage. I have done lots of research and found a plan I think will work best for me. If for some reason I cannot do this one I will move on to another. I am really hoping to be able to do this in December. The harder I work for it the more committed I become. I think I cannot completely commit to it yet because I don't know how my body is going to respond to so many miles. I will train for it like I'm going to do it, and I will let you know when my mind if finally made up. Just the thought of 26.2 scares the holy bejeezes out of me. Who knows???
Tomorrow we also start the 5:30 workouts. I do not love early mornings but I am coming around to the idea. For one, we have a nice little group that is getting together to do these steps and I love to see these people getting out there and being active. Also, selfishly, I know my workouts are going to be longer because the distance will be growing so I will have to wake up earlier to fit it all in the day.
I am posting all this from work today so I cannot post my pictures, but I have a funny one or two for you. I will try to get back on tonight and put them up.
Don't forget to check back tomorrow, we have weigh in day!!!!!! I am so ready for this...I love seeing the progress. Keep it up guys, one more week, lets make it the best one yet!
