This weekend, hearing Ali and Emily talking about their current training, I started longing to be training for something again. (By the way, if you don’t already read Emily’s blog, you should. She’s training for a freaking Ironman. She took an early bus back to D.C. this morning so she could get a 100-mile bike ride in for her training. Talk about inspiring.)
As Ashley and I walked to brunch yesterday, she said that she thought we should call yesterday’s run the beginning of our training season for the NYC Marathon–and I loved that idea. I’ll officially start training on July 1, but I’m going to do one 6-miler a week between now and then. I’m also going to recommit to my triathlon training schedule so that I can feel as strong on July 23 as I did yesterday.
So I’m just going to start carb loading now. (I know I said I was going to cut back on wheat products a bit, but I’m trying get rid of some of the ones I have on hand first.)
