137 Days & Counting

Just a quick update before I head to bed...
2 more miles closer to New Orleans :o) ... and 137 days until the Eau Claire 1/2 marathon!
Training is going well this week. I'm up to running 5 minutes, walking 1 for 1/2 an hour straight. Not bad for someone who 5 weeks prior didn't run and didn't like running!
Have to insert my lil' shout out to Russell! This season's winner of So You Think You Can Dance! I'm pretty dang excited to see someone I've been cheering for all season actually win!! Way to go!!

Running To Cafe Dumonde

So to keep me motivated, I stole an idea from my boss. She & her sister have decided to 'race' eachother to a certain destination to see who can get there first. Their destination is the dells. They track their running and whomever runs that many miles first, wins!

Currently I'm racing myself to... CAFE DUMONDE!!! For those of you that have never had the pleasure of sitting in the french quarter of New Orleans stuffing your face with the worlds most amazing desert, sipping amazing cafe ole, listening to some of the best street music you will ever hear. Its a must! I figured it would be a great goal.

If you care to join me, in my virtual race, at any time, let me know and i'll put your very own themometer on the blog. You can update me on your progress and we can race together!

**138 Days to go!

Training Update-141 days and counting

I havn't updated lately, but trust me I've still been working on my training.

Week 2 didn't go as well as I had hoped it would. Infact I didn't even make it through day 1 of week 2! But instead of just dropping it like I normally would have, I'm pretty proud to say that I kept trying. It took me three weeks of doing "what i could" to finally make it through that 1st day of week 2.

On Monday I'm happy to say I finally completed that retched day ;o)

Surprisingly when I had to bump up my training on Wednesday I had no problem, and hence I'm sitting here able to say that my '2nd week' (5th) of training is FINALLY complete!!

It hasn't been simple, I even found myself visiting family out of town w/out a treadmill, and where I would normally say 'no way it's too cold' I instead packed my running shoes, contacted a good friend and got my rear out the door! Even not feeling well one day this week I found the strength to do what I could late that evening, when normally I would have said "no way it's too late".

I think a lot of being able to change my way of thinking this week has got to be a quote that I received from runnersworld "It's hard to train for a marathon, but it's a lot hard to not be able to train for a marathon"...this has really burned into my mind and it's seems to help me get through those moments when I want to say "I'm too tired, it's too cold, it's too late, it's too early, I don't feel good". I've got to say when you get through those brief moments... it makes all the difference.

Love to All!
