Today I ran 3 miles. After reading blog about the hills involved in the middle of the marathon I decided I had better start running hills instead of walking. Why are hills so hard? I mean my heart wants to jump out of my chest.
Today I kept my eyes on the ground at my feet instead of looking up at the huge hill I had to climb, this made it a little easier. I still need tons of hill work! I did not wear my Garmin but am certain I was red lining it in terms of "Hey old lady...what the hell are you doing walk before you stroke" kind of message my Garmin would have told me! But I did it and now I will continue to run hills I encounter instead of walking them just go slow and keep going....
SLOW IS THE NEW FAST!
thankful I am able to challenge myself to this marathon
already I am thinking what will I do next? Considering biking because my husband does that and maybe someday when I get stronger we could go on rides together.
Since this marathon I want NO EXCUSES~ I have decided to have no more alcohol until after I run 26.2 miles and flop into the Pacific Ocean on 3/21/10!
