At last, the wait is over. For more than a month I have just been taking it easy and running low mileage recovery runs. It has gone well and was certainly needed. That being said for the last two weeks or so it has been tough to keep holding back. Starting this week I will begin to prepare for my fall marathon and Disney Half Marathon. I will really get moving next week but this week I will run my longest run in over a month.
I am really ready to get started and to get moving again. I am very excited about the prospect of training for a marathon. It has been a while since I just trained for the sole purpose of performing and running a marathon alone. I am very curious to see how my training progresses the next three months.
The schedule will remain fun the whole way with the Blue Ridge Relay, Disney Wine and Dine Half Marathon Relay and even a trail race or two mixed in.
I know the key word for me during this training will be patience. It has been a high mileage year and I asked my body to do many different things so far during the training for several races. My next goal is to get to the start line of the marathon healthy and ready to give it a good run at a solid time.
