First Long Run
(Racing to the Finish)
I have started the training schedule and although I dread it each new day when it is over I am really happy with my performance and that I have actually met the days goal. It does help that I have Kim to run with me otherwise I would talk myself out of getting up in the mornings. Saturday was the first long run of the schedule of 12 miles but it turned to 13 miles due to the Provo Trail was a mile longer than the 12 mile run!! Since it was way too cold to walk the last mile we were forced to run. Essentially I a half marathon on my first go in 2 hours which is right on track for running the full marathon in 4 hours!!! I won't go into long boring detail of my run, that is for the other blog but we am on track and ready to go!!! Watch out Ogden Marathoners we are out to win!!!
(Okay we aren't this angry we just have the sun in our eyes)
