I haven’t said much about my marathon training this year. But I’m still running it and training is going right along. Like I’ve said before, I’m not making any claims to be a perfect marathon runner. I don’t follow Hal Higdon’s training guide (people literally gasp when I tell them this), I only run 3-4 days a week (again, gasping) and I am convinced that doing copious amounts of yoga helped me tackle that 26.2 last year just as much as my actual long runs did.
So, I’m running, practicing yoga 2-3 times week and every long run has felt really good. Strong. I want to cross that finish line and make every mile before that strong. I was scared out of my mind last year so I think this year is going to be a whole lot more fun- I know I can do it, I know it’s amazing and I can’t wait to roll out of bed and head to Columbus Drive and Monroe to take my spot at the starting line. Just going to focus on staying strong in the meantime.
