Yesterday several people commented on my continuing success but also asked "Where are the miles?"
That's a wonderful question. The answer is: the miles are there - but I'm not focusing on them at the moment.
Here's the plan Angie and I have developed:
Focus on strength training (legs and arms) as well as balance and core for NOW. (Probably into the Spring). Lose weight. Lots. Fast. Continue running and building up stamina, but don't go crazy there. Once we've built up the base that I currently have, we ARE going to start going crazy with milage. Following a race training pattern.
I imagine the REALLY hard race training will start about 6-8 months out from the race.
Until then - the treadmill is my friend and I use it to supplement the other workouts and keep moving forward. My pace is getting better - my legs are getting stronger. And I'm running my own training marathon. :)
Sounds good doesn't it?
