Hello. Anyone still there?
It’s been awhile! Life has been busy. And good.
The biggest change is with my Twin Cities training. I ended up stopping the plan I was doing (even though I LOVED it – and will definitely try it again for a different marathon). Instead, I ended up joining a new running group. It’s a bit of a hike from my house, so I am hit or miss on making the workouts, but I felt like I needed the fun and social and mental support that a group provides.
It’s a large group! Here we are at our long run this morning:
Though our actual running group is much smaller because they divide us into 3 groups based on pace. So far, so good. Its exactly what I need. A good mix of challenging and easy runs, a good group of people and something different.
I am starting week 6 of the 16 week program. Whee.
Things I know I need to focus on:
- Eating better.
- Making sure to do my stretching, warm ups/cool downs and PT exercises
I am love love LOVING every second of my running this summer. It is so great to not only be back to running, but to be back to training. I am SO excited to actually run another marathon this fall.
Random cliche life thought: I am SUCH a big believer in “Things work out the way they are meant to be”. There are a handful of things that are so so challenging right now. But there are also many things that are going better than I ever imagined. I feel like I’m in the right place right now. Heading in the direction things are meant to head. End of random life thoughts.
