Well I have to say that I'm pretty happy with my first official day of training. I did not make it up at 4am to go to the gym but I did go after work. I did 10 minutes of the Elliptical to get my heart rate elevated followed by 50 minutes of weights. I concentrated on my hips, glutes, hamstrings, quads, biceps, triceps, shoulders, back, and of course core. My eating was pretty right on today with the exception of a muffin that my coworker brought in for me. I started the day with a yogurt, had a chicken dinner for lunch, and ended the day with homemade chicken barbecue pizza.
I have contacted two running coaches for some help in my endeavors but the first one I contacted no longer lives in the Chicago area and the other just had ankle surgery. Ahhh!!! So I'm still on the hunt for a running coach....
My blog will follow my running journey up to and through my 1st Marathon... Chicago 2010! You will read about my inspirations, PRs (hopefully!), and of course my struggles. So feel free to share your stories as well!
