Getting Faster

I can't relate too well to the posts about the weather - here in Brisbane Aus we have high temperatures and high humidity at the moment. I run with my kelpie, and we need to get out well before 6am or it's just too hot!

I'm just coming back from a tendon injury and had a 3km time trial at our running club tonight - we run at the track every Thursday evening. 14.37 was my time, about 28 seconds slower than my pb, but I did do a personal training class on Tuesday arvo, a heavy duty fitness class on Wednesday morning then the string of exercises my physio suggested on Wednesday evening. My legs and butt muscles really hurt!

The great thing was I had no tendon or knee pain. I'm keen to find a marathon training program now, I'm more likely to do something if I've got a program to follow. Looking at the FIRST program with 3 workouts a week with cross training. I think it'll fit in with the children/job/husband/household pretty well.

Now I just have to plan the family budget to allow me to get to the Great Ocean Road Marathon.

Hmm, now that I've publicly said I'm going to run a marathon, that means I have to do it...

That's right! Once it is out there, no turning back... good luck!

The Great Ocean Road Marathon sounds amazing and beautiful! What a marathon for your first! But if you'd rather come all the way to Oregon in the US, some of us are doing a marathon the same weekend. :) (Newport, OR Marathon)
