He was on the local news Saturday morning. He's from Cochrane, Alberta but was in town for the Vancouver Marathon tomorrow. 250 Marathons in a YEAR! WOW!!! And I can barely imagine doing one. He typically runs 5 days in a row then 2 rest days (with some exceptions of course).
Reading through his blog and seeing some of the weather and things he goes through on his daily marathons is amazing. Makes me re-think the times that I've skipped a workout because I'm tired, or it's cold/hot outside.
Here's another summer dress I picked up recently. I have a thing for bright colors ... or black & white. This IS going to be the summer I wear more dresses. Now if the weather could just cooperate!
MAY 2010 GOALS
♥ Run 80+ Miles - reducing this one a bit this month. In the back of my head I want to do 100 again. If I can stay uninjured I will go for the 100, but I want to leave a little wiggle room. 80 I should be able to comfortably do.
♥ 10 Strength Sessions - not a huge number, but more than I have been doing. This is once every 3 days and is likely to fit my schedule.
♥ Plan! Prepare! Organize!- this worked so well last month that I'm going to keep this up. One thing that really helps is to prepare food on the weekends, especially for lunches (veggies, fruit, boiled eggs, leftovers). Also, making large batches of meals that can be reheated quickly after work.
May 9 - Vancouver Sun Run 10K (goals for this TBA)
May 30 - Run for Water Half Marathon (tentative)
I may or may not do the May 30th Half. That was the one I was originally planning to do next, but some of my friends are doing one at the end of June and I may do that one instead with them. In a perfect world I'd do both, but financially I'll probably just do one. Race fees for myself wouldn't be so bad, but it's me AND my husband and they add up.
May is going to be a busy month and hopefully full of lots of exciting things! I'm really looking forward to it. I'm feeling ALOT more energy and focus than I have for quite a long time.
