Let's try this again.
Dear Training Blog,
Sorry to dump you so suddenly last summer. But Jen broke her wrist, and I had stress fractures galore, we didn't need a training blog. We shifted into surviving-and-rolling-with-the-punches. But now we're training for Marathon #2 and we need to record some data.
Week 4 - July 9-15
Monday---Biked 10 miles
Tuesday ---Ran 5 miles
Wednesday---Swim x 40 min
Thursday---Ran 7 miles
Sunday---Ran 12 miles
So, we're shopping at Ikea on October 6th. And there is a silly race the next day, I guess we'll do that, too. 26.2 miles of I-don't-know-what-we-are-thinking-doing-this-again.
The heat is pretty unbearable right now. We ran 8 miles last night, finished at 9:40pm and it was STILL 96 degrees. Jen and I were both borderline ill, too.
Sometimes I wonder why we're doing this again, but marathons are a lot like childbirth. It sounds great when you're in the planning stages. You want to die while you're doing it. And when it's over, you just forget how bad it was. I don't know....it's like the older I get the more I just want to do things to push myself to the brink of collapse. It makes me feel alive. And I also have the two best friends in the world to do all of this with, and it doesn't get better than that.
So here we go again, recording the journey....
