Today I lifted upper body weights with my coach/friend Cindy. Bench. Triceps. Curls. Abs. It’s been a long time since I’ve done any lifting so I’m hoping to be delightfully sore tomorrow. My arms are even shaky as I type this.
Since I don’t officially start my New York Marathon training schedule until July, I thought I’d just do the first two weeks of the plan and then start it over again.
Tomorrow is speed work – 8 x 400 at 6AM. Yay. It will be hell, but it won’t take that long. I’m not sure how fast I’m supposed to run them, but I guess it will be as fast as my butt will make it around the track.
I’m going to need new shoes soon. Should I just buy one pair now and another later, or should I buy two pairs now and rotate? Will that get me through the marathon in November?
