Today, I got the hairbrained idea to run in the snow. Seeing that Sunday is my long run day, I felt that I had to.
Didn't get the time I wanted, but did get the distance...2.45 miles. Again, my pace was abysmal, but I got this run in. Sidestepping snow chunks and trying to guess where the potholes were made me a touch apprehensive.
well, tomorrow, i get a well deserved rest, and then off to the podiatrist on Tuesday for ingrown toenails.
I wish I could say that running was easy this week. Sadly, it wasn't.
Been very cognizant that this is the moment when people start shortchanging their previous goals and walk them back. I am determined to continue this quest. Again...To remind myself. I am running this marathon in October for a number of reasons. The Goal of a marathon can keep me on track for the goal of better health. ALSO, seeing that I am 52..and going to be 53 in October, I am not sure how many of these opportunities I am going to have to run a marathon. Like my son says, I am closer to my death, than I am to my birth.
To start off the week, I ran my 2 miler on Sunday...which will be the day I run the long run for the week from now on. Here is what I did.
This Week's Runs
Signed up for my first marathon....The Detroit Free Press Marathon on October 16, 2022. This unique race runs across the Ambassador Bridge from Detroit Michigan to Windsor Ontario (CAN). Then it comes back under the Detroit river via the Windsor Tunnel.
I ran the half marathon in 2013...and there is no time like the present to run a full marathon...I will be 53 y/o in October.
39 Weeks, and 2 and a half days from now.
