Life took over the last week - work, family, home etc.. but the running didn't suffer. I managed to get out to running club on Tuesday and then ran most days of last week, managing 9 miles on Saturday and Sunday despite late nights. However, by yesterday those late nights came home to roost - I only managed two before going to bed very early last night. Still, I am feeling positive and have decided, more or less definitely (is there such a thing?) to enter the Amsterdam marathon on October 21st.
Still haven't decided on a training program but ShirlyPerly of the Humble Triathlete blog has very generously and kindly offered to help me out there. I'm going to be e-mailing her my details and info today and see what she says. I'm still interested in the Hansons program but the fact that there is no book out there about it makes it that much more difficult to do, I think. What do you think? Other exciting news is that Maddy is going the whole hog and running a marathon as well so we can cheer each other on from across the Atlantic!
Otherwise - I just got the MP3 files for this CD that Dr. Monte is putting together on weight loss and healthy lifestyles and to which I made a contribution. Great stuff but AWFUL hearing my voice - I sound like Mary Poppins! I don't know how people do this podcasting thing, this has made me realise I definitely can't listen to myself. Anyway - I will let you all know when it comes out and you can see what you think.
And that's it! Uneventful life this week which makes a nice change. Keep runnning!
