Training for Philly Marathon!
Thursday, August 02, 2012
So CRAZIEST thing in the world, I've decided to train for the Philadelphia Marathon. Ok, this isn't exactly the craziest thing I guess, I have done 3 5Ks this year so far, and I can pretty much run a few miles no problem, but for me, that other 23 miles is going to be the challenge LOL!!
SO I've started training and I've done my first day and I was onto my second day yesterday and I wasn't able to finish the 5 miles "hills" run. I was inside on a treadmill due to the rain, but my hips started bothering me! This is a new phenomenon, as in the past my knees have felt wonky after a few miles, but I think because of the pelvic rotation I do when I'm running, it's put strain on my hips.
Not to worry, I'm on a rest day today and will get new sneakers tomorrow prior to the "5 mile easy" run.
Isn't it frustrating, when you finally decide to do something, to get into a program, that you get injured or can't do what you're supposed to do? I just don't understand it, but I'm sure there's some reason out there that I’m just not seeing yet.
It's hard when your life isn't working out according to plan (at all) - but I guess the best thing to do in that case is to make a new plan!
