Another one

 

Hello everyone.  I am so sore today, my feet hurt, my legs hurt, everything hurts!  LOL!  After training for the marathon and acutally running the marathon I thought I was good to go.  But no that is not to be.  The coach had me take a week off of running after the marathon.  I started running again on Saturday.  We did 4 miles on Saturday and 3 on Sunday.  Monday is our day off.  (so are Fridays)  yesterday was a 3 mile day.  It was raining so hard after work I had to go to the Y to do the 3 miles on the treadmill.  It is really hard to start running again after doing a marathon.  After the last ones I had done I didn't run again for a long time, months actually.  So this running again a week later is difficult.  Sore muscles everywhere.  I found it very interesting that when I finished the marathon my abs hurt!  Why would my abs hurt???  I guess every muscle in your body gets a work out while running that far.  Today is only 2 miles so I should be good!  Back to 3 tomorrow and then off Friday.  6 on Saturday.  Saturday's will be the long runs.  I will keep everyone more updated during my training for this next marathon then I did in the last one.  If I miss a training day I will say so in here so you can all give me an ear full so I will not want to miss it again!

The next marathon that I am doing is The Nike Women's marathon.  It is October 19, 2008.  I am also running this one for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.  I need to raise alot more for this one than I did the last one.  This one I need to raise $3500!!  That seems so scary!  But I have faith, I will do it.  I also want to finish this one in under 5 hours.  That is going to take some work!  That is why I can't miss workouts so I am going to make myself accountable!  So if I miss you all yell at me?  Deal?
