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?
