Yes, I'm considering a full marathon. Maybe. November 26. We are at the in-laws this year for Thanksgiving down in Mobile, AL, so I was looking for a race that weekend. I found one about an hour and 1/2 away the Saturday after Thanksgiving and two days after my 35th birthday! Whoa! 35! I guess maybe that would be a good way to celebrate, either my first marathon or a great 1/2 marathon. The Mississippi Coast Marathon. It's small, cheap and flat. I'm excited about the opportunity. It's a ways off, but I should have plenty of time to train this fall with both boys in school full time. I do have other obligations Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, but still should have time to get training in and up my mileage considerably.
Now to find a good 1/2 marathon in late September, early October to test my fitness. Hmmmm...
In other news, the Nike Training Club app is awesome and getting me toner and fitter and stronger. I love it. But, I am in serious endurance deprivation from a lack of long runs over the past few months, though think I can get it back pretty quick. I need to get consistently back to 25 mpw. I'm struggling now with 15-20. Then I will try to up to 35 if I can hang. Usually if I get past 28-30 I am constantly tired but maybe I just need a bit more consistency until my stamina can get built up.
I'm heading to Detroit Thursday for a friend's wedding! Can't wait to see old friends and have a girls weekend. Maybe I can sneak a run in.... we'll see.
On the consumption front, I have been CRAVING these:
What are your fall race plans? I am pumped!!!
