Five of us (maybe 6 – not sure about Nicole) have committed to running the God’s Country Marathon on June 5, 2010 west of Mansfield/Wellsboro area in upstate PA. This will be my third marathon so I know what kind of commitment I’m in for. But I’ve been putting off the inevitable – getting back into the schedule of getting up at 4:30 am most days and going to sleep at 8:30 and eating right and being disciplined and….ugh.
But Krumy’s post has spurred me into action. I WILL get back into the swing of things on Monday, January 18th – one week before the actual marathon training begins. No matter how little sleep I get and how crappy I am going to feel during the day because of that lack of sleep, I WILL get up and go in and run and do body pump. It will be a week or so of utter agony, trying to adjust my body to the new schedule. And I would just like to point out that I have off on Monday. So I COULD sleep in, but I won’t.
And while I normally only post out of the ordinary things in life here so I don’t bore people to death, I will be posting regularly about the marathon training. Wish me luck.
