26 weeks -Week 1-

Week 1
I've decided to embark on my journey of completing 26.2 miles  and particpate in the Los Angeles Marathon that takes place March 18, 2012.  This week began my training and my legs are sore.  I don't think that I have ever experienced soreness like this in my life.  I guess this will gradually go away as my trianing continues. Kristen and I were surprised at the pace group we ended up being placed in.  It's a slight improvement from the pace gorup that I was in last year.  We shall see how it goes.  I'm excited and scared at the same time.

Week 2
I actually showed back up with the mindset that 4 miles was just one mile more than 3. I am convinced that it is a cult and I am trying to decide if I want to be a member. Kristen and I finished it in under an hour with relative ease.  Well other than that nagging pain in my right foot 3rd toe.  I gotta figure out a way to make this work since I have at least 24 more weeks to go. Next week is just 1 extra mile and mentally I'm ready, I just have to added the physical part to it so I can endure. It's been a minute since I've done 5 miles.  Almost a year to be exact.

Week 3
5 miles officially down. 1 more mile than 4. I survived without my body hating me in the end. Those midday workouts are the truth.  Kristen and I are gradually beginning to buy into this cult, since we are definitely convinced that people who run when there is nothing chasing them have to be in some mind altering state. My foot held up, but that left leg was another story.  The quest will continue.

The sad part is that I fell off with my training and fell off with this blog, but still completed it.  Seeing this draft brought a smile to my face and any time that happens I'm happy. It's nice to have a moment of reflection.
