Started training this week! I'm now another day behind as of today, though. (Which makes five days behind total...) Good excuse this time though- I moved from Chicago to Orlando today and was traveling the entire time. Long day, but I"m excited to be here!
I guess this whole marathon training thing was a little daunting for me, but I was so excited to do it. I was scared that I would find out that I was in over my head, but it turns out that I'm in better shape than I thought! I'm not a fast runner, but I was able to keep up the pace (and beat it!) required by the marathon rules. I did 3 miles on Monday and 2 miles yesterday, and let me tell you- I felt like I could have done more, which is incredible for me. In the past, a mile nearly killed me. A mile and a half and I thought I was going to pass out. P90X has gotten me in to such great shape! I can't even begin to describe it. I even enjoy running now- I'm sure the attitude change helps with all of it. I'm really excited that I can now do things like this without wanting to die. No exaggeration in that statement at all- I legitimately mean it!
I get on my cruise tomorrow and look forward to running around the track on the boat! I'm also adding in cross training to my schedule, which means I'm still doing P90X+ with the running. Should be great! Can't wait to share my experiences with you!
