I'm a month into my marathon training program for St. George and it seems to be going good so far. I'm learning that there really is a purpose to every run and I'm careful not to cheat on any of my workouts. So, far I've completed long runs up to 14 miles which is the farthest I've ever ran. This Saturday is a 16 miler, yikes.. that makes me nervous!
Everyday is spent reading up on proper nutrition (thanks for the book Jen) and training tips. Carl has printed off several articles on the importance of running HILLS! Hills are suppose to make you faster and stronger. Last week I included hills into two of my workouts. One of the hills is over a mile long with a 6% grade. I made it to the top without stopping which was a first for me.
We finally got a bike trailer for Crew and he is addicted. Every spare minute is spent with him getting towed around. He LOVES it! Carl, Stock, and I have to take turns pulling him around because its so exhausting at some point.
Also, I'm starting Week 3 of the P.I.N.K workout. It's a great, short workout to add in at the end of the day or whenever I can squeeze it in. Well, with the running, biking, and strength training I'm feeling it. One thing I really need to work on is getting enough sleep:)
