Marathon Training has Begun!

Yesterday morning I met my Galloway group for our FIRST marathon training long run!  Let me just say how happy I am that I did the getting started group beforehand because we ran/walked a fast 3 miles and I wouldn't have been able to do that 2 months ago.  I joined the 1300/mile group that was doing 45 sec run/ 15 sec walk.  I knew pretty quickly we were running much faster than that and when we did a mile I saw it was 12:13.  Once we did the turn around at 1.5 miles the leader slowed down quite a bit so we evened out a little more.

I was excited to find my friend shortly after arriving and it was cool that there were a ton of people there.  It was so hot and humid already at 700am that I can't wait for us to start at 600am for the next few months.  Next week we're doing the magic mile to see what our true pace is and I'm a little nervous!  I haven't run a mile straight in a long time...  

I'm still a paper person so I printed off the training plan and got to organizing my calendar!  It really helps me to pick out which days I intend on running during the week so that I'm well prepared.  

Hope you had a great weekend!

  1. I always get oddly excited planning out training for different races haha ;). It is nice to see it all on paper (or in my case my computer's calendar). Good luck with your marathon training!!
