Well I took the day off today. I woke up exhausted even after 9 1/2 hours of sleep and both of my knees are a little sore. I'm pretty sure I am getting my hubby's cold. Blah! I don't have a whole lot to report today.
I had a yogurt for breakfast, a Foot Long Veggie Delite for lunch, and homemade chicken fajitas (chicken, red onion, green bell pepper, and low fat wheat tortilla) for dinner. Yum!
I have been in contact with a running coach and have been advised that with my previous injuries she recommends strength training 2x per week and running 3-4 days per week and to rest 1-2 days. I was advised against 2-a-days. So....we'll see how this goes for now.
My last thoughts on this is..."It consumes you but it doesn't...You get this mind set and it's all you think about and you find yourself talking to everyone about it even if they don't want to hear it..." This is a great quote from my favorite movie "Spirit of the Marathon". If you haven't seen this movie and you are a runner I highly recommend it. Rest assured that there will be many more quotes coming in the future!
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!
