One Foot in Front of the Other

Today I kicked off my 1st day of my Marathon Training!

I will be doing the Tucson Marathon on December 12 (which is in 18 weeks...which will come fast!)

When I decided to do a marathon, I thought about doing the Phoenix Rock N Roll - which is very popular....but decided upon doing a race in my current city I call "home"!

If you have been reading my sister, Lisa's blog and "Marathon Madness Recaps" -- you will notice here very organized and strategic schedule. Which is one of her favorite things about the training process.

I wish I was like her..........

My schedule is not as organized. It's kind of tough with the career of nursing though - since there's no "order" or "routine" to your schedule. So I just know what "type" of runs I need to do each week, and throw them in where I can!

All I pray for is safe and healthy (and speedy) training!

My 1st run (this morning) -- did not go well.

I blame my vacation this prior weekend, and the heat. :-)

We had a fantastic Anniversary weekend!! Expect a post to come "recapping" the happenings from our little get-away. However, it probably won't happen this week. I have NCLEX Monday-Thursday for 8 hours. And Capstone Day is on Friday!!!

Hope you all had a great weekend, and have a fantastic week! :)

Good luck Abby...on the training and the school stuff/exams!!
I had to kind of laugh (a sort of terrified laugh) when you wrote that "December 12th is only 18 weeks away and will be here fast..." I'm due the 7th of December and feel the same way...it's going to be here quick!!
I look forward to hearing how the training goes!

Happy Training! I am sure you will do fantastic and will have a HUGE PR come December.

Training is going to fly by. I can not believe I am 1/2 done with it. I am kind of freaked out by that, though, as my runs have not been going well. My pace is getting worse, not better. I don't know if it is the heat... or the fact that I am not getting nearly enough sleep... or what. But i just feel like i lost my running mojo. So if you find it down in Tucson, please send it back my way...
