How is your training going?
I haven’t posted in a while as has life has been so chaotic with work. My working days have been spreading into time when I should still be in bed and long into the night. It’s all good but it’s meant that I haven’t been able to train too much.
The weekend just gone was the Gold Coast Marathon, Half Marathon etc and I knew a lot of people who ran it including a number of friends that ran their first ever marathons. They had a tough day as it was quite warm and it’s hard when you have been training in the cold and then suddenly you get a much warmer day for the race. I have had that happen a few times and it’s hard work. But they did really well and finished which is awesome.
I was quite hyped up after reading about lots of different peoples experiences on Saturday and Sunday so was a bit naughty as I am not meant to be pushing myself too much at the moment and I went for a secret run! I probably pushed myself too hard and it hurt but oh boy did it feel good to be out running and feeling that great sense of working hard 🙂 Can’t wait until I can start my proper training again and my friend and I were just discussing today our plans to lead up to the New York Marathon on 2015. I am so excited I can’t wait to start building back up to those long long runs.
In the meantime I am taking it a bit easier, doing lots of toning to keep everything trim and enjoying the rest before the hard work begins again 🙂
On another note if you have been reading for a little while you’ll remember that Run Stop Shop was looking to name the top running blog in Australia from their point of view. Thanks to those of you that voted I came 4th 🙂 I didn’t even expect to get ranked so it was a nice surprise and encouraging.
Have a great day and happy running 🙂
