About marathon training that is! With about two and a half weeks left before the Queens Half-Marathon, and then a headfirst dive into marathon training the week after that, it was time to nail down a training plan and memorialize it in a calendar format (e.g. our lives for the months of August, September, and October). First and foremost, which training plan to go with? Apparently my friend and I had picked a different “novice” plan from the other, and after some discussion and some math:
We went with plan numero uno. Now to address this whole food issue…I ran a grand total of three miles this morning. Three. I nearly inhaled a breakfast sandwich as soon as I got to work and maybe two hours later, I was stupid hungry again. I just ate “brunch” (otherwise known as breakfast #2 / lunch #1 on weekdays), and I have a feeling this will not be the end of my hunger anytime soon. Just imagine what our respective grocery bills / food expenses will be once those 7, 8, and even 10 mile weekdays and the double-digit mile weekends start. I’m half-tempted to keep track of those expenses throughout this process but I think I might cry afterward, so I’ll probably just remain blissfully ignorant.
Ah well, November 6, 2011? Here we come!
