Cherry Blossom Running

Sunday, February 21, 2010

FINALLY, got outside for a run today!!!! WooHoo! And hubby ran along with me, and we covered six miles together. So now I am back where I was before the snows in my training for the Cherry Blossom 10-miler on April 11. I have 7 weeks to build up the mileage to 10 miles. I figured if I can add a mile the next two weeks and then a half mile for the next 4 weeks to my long run, I have a shot. AND THERE CANNOT BE ANY MORE SNOW!!! Do you hear me Mother Nature?!? LOL!!

I also signed up for a 4-week Pilates class to help build my core...I think this will help the running as well.
I am pumped and appreciate all the support of my Spark friends. Thanks and a special shoutout to friend Macgirrl for my new inspiring theme song:

Think cherry blossoms and spring!!

    emoticon Six miles out with the hubby!! That's so great. You will get up to that 10 miles in no time. I'll be sure to keep everything crossable crossed so that you won't get another flake of snow. emoticon Have fun with the Pilates class too. I'm sure you'll not only strengthen the core but have an awesome time in the process.
