Last night I sat down with a fresh 2011 calendar and a pen. I took some time and plotted out the next 6 months of my life. I now know every mile I need to run between now and April 30th to prepare myself mind and body for the Nashville Country Music Marathon. In addition to my running, I will also be joining a gym that is within walking distance of my house so that I can add weight training to my schedule at least 3 times a week as well as taking a spin class on my cross training day (also, I’m thinking that with all the work and tight muscles, yoga wouldn’t be a bad idea).
I know it looks pretty rough, but I am just beyond excited! I can’t can’t to see how my body will adapt to the schedule and I’m psyched to see my progress! I like to push myself and this is by far the most strenuous attempt thus far. I’m sure that there will be a fair share of bitching going on here over the next 6 months, but I really hope that at the end of all that there is a post on my stellar performance at the marathon!
