So, marathon training. It scares me so much. The maintenance increases to stay uninjured, but there are still no guarantees. It's putting a lot on the line! Your whole heart, gallons of sweat, hours of time, mental strength, and chances are you're also devoting a major part of your daily thoughts to this one race!!
It usually goes well in my daydreams. Or maybe I hit the wall at mile 25.5. ha
The start of training is really exciting and I do love it. This will be a really long cycle as I'm working on my base still, but I plan to do periodic updates like I did with the Great Wall training. Maybe every couple of weeks or so.
Some monsoony-views from this week.
I spent more time rolling/stretching than running! After last Saturday's race in the warmer temperatures, my legs were a bit tight. I've also been keeping up some squatting + push ups.
I am going to invest in a new foam roller with ridges/bumps on it. What I would really like to buy is this awesome R8 Massage Roller. If you've never heard of it you should check it out. I've seen it on running blogs and it has great reviews, I just wish it wasn't $120!
On to week #2!
Have a great Monday!
