The other night I was comparing the elevation charts for the Publix Marathon and the Nashville Marathon. I'm super glad I didn't choose to do that Publix....
Those first few miles of Nashville are going to be brutal... but well worth it for an almost flat 10k at the end. Meg did the Publix as her first marathon and said it was the most traumatic experience ever. Looking at those elevation changes I can certainly see why.
I made it to the pool on Friday for a swim on my "rest" day. 15 laps and I was pooped. I'm excited to see how much overall body strength I can develop but it's definitely going to be a journey. Today is a cross training day. I'm not sure what the day will hold as far as that goes. Maybe yoga at 11. And maybe some biking after that with my kendal in hand. Nothing crazy but enough to get my heart rate going and my muscles engaged.
It's very satisfying to be able to record all of my miles. Every when my "goal" is the number of miles that are on my training schedule. As long as I follow the schedule I always meet the goal. There's nothing better than being able to see that you have done something great for yourself and your body.
Here's to getting some fitness in for the day! WOO!
