Hello stranger! April 11, 2007Posted by RegiVizz in Marathon, Marathon training, Running, Shoes.
I know, I know…I’ve been a slacker when it comes to updating my blog recently. In the past several weeks I’ve spent very few days at home. A trip to Reno/Tahoe area to visit my sister, which included a lovely run at the Kirkwood ski resort as well as some good “working out” time spent on the treadmill and elliptical (I love those things!). It’s always fun to run in new places, see some new scenery and die from the lack of oxygen in the air! Who knew that running at 7,800 feet would be so hard! Okay, well I knew it would be harder, but man, I was sore for DAYS after a little 6 mile run!
After that trip, I headed out to Washington DC to see the cherry blossom trees in full bloom. The trees weren’t the only thing blooming, my new relationship was as well! Besides the miles and miles of walking to see the sights, Chris took me on a run along some of the trails there in DC.
Next stop was central Texas, and my friend Mark came along with me on a 4 mile run in the dark (it was 6 AM), cold (40 degrees) and wet (it was drizzling).
So although I haven’t been getting in my daily training runs, and even fewer long training runs, I’m still feeling fairly good about the upcoming marathon which takes place in 18 days. Eeek. Only 18 days?!?
Luckily my new shoes (Saucony ProGrid Hurricane 9) are broken in and feeling quite fine and I’m not having any problems with the top of my left foot anymore.
18 days and counting down!
