So I walked off and left my blog after Week 8 of marathon training. However, I did NOT walk away from the marathon goal itself. Nope, as illustrated by my 24-week training plan above, I stuck with it ... as best I was able given everything else that has gone on throughout 2014. And on November 8, 2014, at dark-o-clock in the chilly, windy morning, I got up, got dressed and did it.
I chatted with my Healthy Everyday Lifestyle Podcast co-host, Angela, about the big day on our most recent podcast episode, which you can listen to right here:
And so now that the long training hours are done (until next time.....), it is my plan to begin to blog again at least somewhat regularly, because I really have missed it. Even if I only have a small handful of regular readers, or even none at all, I feel like it helps me sort out my own thoughts at times. No real plans yet on WHAT I'll be blogging about, but that'll come along in due time, I have no doubt.
I'm also going to be blogging regularly over at the Tripura Foundation HoPE Post Blog, so be sure to catch me there, too!
Oh, wanna know how I feel about myself after completing a very difficult, very hilly, very lonely 26.2 miles? A whole heck of a lot better, that's how! More confident. Less anxious (most of the time!). Definitely more of a can-do attitude, and... I even listened back to the entire podcast episode above. If you know me at all, you know that's pretty big. I usually cringe at the sound of my own voice being played back, and so I've tended to avoid it at all costs in the past. Now, I guess it's not too terribly bad after all. ;)
This blog post is all over the place... I apologize... but, I guess that's what I get for being absent from my own blog for so long. I promise that future blog posts will be less... scattered. :)
As for the next step in my physical fitness... as of December 1, I'll be tackling Les Mills Combat.
It'll be a refreshing change of pace from running, though don't count running out altogether for me over the winter months. Nope, that's why I own a treadmill. ;)
Until next time... leave me a comment letting me know what topics you might like for me to cover in future blog posts. I'm curious! And I'm happy to be back! :)
