To keep myself honest about my training for the New York City Marathon, I'm going to post my training log each Sunday. Right now, my distances may not seem like a lot, but I'm finally managing to run consistently every week, which has been a struggle in and of itself. My running also feels a lot better, yesterday's run notwithstanding. I feel like I'm actually running, not staggering along, gasping for air.
Tuesday - 4 miles, laps in the neighborhood
Thursday - 3.75 miles, 45th Street loop (I like this basic loop, but I have to make it longer)
Saturday - 4 miles, at the Trail (planned to go 5, but I started wheezing)
The best part about running consistently is that I'm feeling more like myself. Being able to get out in the morning and do something just for myself makes the chaos of the rest of the day easier to handle.
My goal for Week 2 is to squeeze in 4 runs, which will be tough since I'll be out of town Saturday for another one of Ella's climbing competitions.
