I have run this before and I know that there are some things I'll do very differently this time around, but basically the crowd carried me through as they were there all the way.
It was humid and hot (over 80F), and I hadn't trained for that, so in Barrow, I'll do some indoor runs wrapped in cellophane.
I followed the Jeff Galloway fat-burning training plan. He does the run-walk method. I love it, as it made recovery the next 2 days post-marathon so much easier. I lost a some weight but dropped from a size 8 to a size double 0. Since I'm not training now, I'm up to a Size 1 or 2, and several months have passed, so I'm a believer in this plan.
Also, I avoided injury, which was my goal. Well, I did get injured a lot, but that was never running-related, so it doesn't count. And i'm really injured now, but that's because I keep falling on my icy driveway and am going to need a hip replacement by spring break at this rate.
is my online vision board.
When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.
