#1 I've decided that I will share my goal for Disney World Marathon. I've been hesitant about telling people because I afraid I won't achieve my goal. Anyway, I want to beat 4:00. I'll be so happy to get 3:59:59 or faster!! My first/only marathon I did was Marine Corp in October '09 and I finished in 4:12. So, I think this is a good goal for me.
#2 To help me reach my goal, I've decided to work much harder in my training. I am doing more weights and targeting my core, back, arms, and legs. I will do this, I WILL DO THIS!
#3 It's freaking hot outside. We are under a heat advisory right now and I'll be super glad when it cools off. I'm ready for pretty fall weather!
Today, since it was so hot and I got up at 11 am, I went to the gym for a run and weights. I ran 4.5 miles on the treadmill. I did hill repeats and 2.5 miles were up hill. It was rough but I LOVE HILLS!! :) Hills outside are always more fun than on a treadmill though. Then I worked my legs, core, and arms.
Question: Do you follow a 4 or 5 month training plan for a marathon? I did 5 for my last one but the training plan I was going to do this time is 4. What do you recommend?
153 days until Disney!
