official starting line

i’m not even going to bother breaking out the (lack of) running this past week. as expected, i got very little in. sab was out of school sick monday afternoon, tuesday and wednesday. sleep was a rarity for both of us and running had little priority. on thursday i started to feel a dull ache in my back ~ likely from sleeping in the arm chair to be close to sab who wanted to sleep on the couch ~ but i ignored it and ran anyway. it felt fine while running but friday i woke up hardly able to turn my head. i’ve been living on ibuprofen since and spending as much time as i can in bed with the heating pad. it feels better today but still not perfect. no doubt it’s time to schedule that massage i need. no more putting it off.

after spending some time looking over my training schedule, and thinking about how to best fit in the length runs that eko has planned for me, i’ve decided it’s best to start my weeks on sundays so today actually marks my first official marathon training run. thankfully it was a very, very short one to get me back into the groove. 

so this is it. in 16-weeks i’ll be running my first marathon. i’ve officially entered training.
