Week 1 of marathon training is complete!
(only 16 more weeks to go!) 😉
Saturday started with a solid 5 mile run, early in the morning. My 5 mile runs are always along the same route, this one was no different. Ended up with 5.12 miles at at pace of 9:04/mile.
Sunday’s run was beautiful! The kids were going to their grandparent’s house for breakfast. Of course, when my husband and I get a chance for a “date,” we go running! And what a lovely run it was!
Seriously beautiful, right?!
For this round of marathon training, I am most excited about the fact that I’ve talked my husband into running the marathon with me! This will be his first, and I know he is going to rock it! I think the hardest part about training for my first marathon was that I did it all by myself. The long runs, while it was nice to have that quiet time, got pretty boring. I think it would have been so much fun to have someone to run them with! Perhaps, the Grandparents would like to have a regularly scheduled Sunday brunch with the kids for all our long runs..?! 😉
Anyways, it was a great long run. we went 9.1 miles at a 9:48/mile pace. And I had the very rare opportunity of having someone there to take a picture of me! Here’s to one of the few posts that has an actual picture that’s not a selfie!
I even kind of look like a runner! 🙂
We brought along a thermos of coffee, so after drinking about a gallon of water each, we sat on a blanket and had some coffee and enjoyed what was left of our quiet morning. I’m pretty sure my Sunday morning couldn’t have gone any better!
How was your weekend? Did you get your long run in?
Okay, now onto my plan for week 2!
