Oh boy! Never say “never again” because then you will just mess up big time…
Not going to whine anymore about not running enough because it can always get worst! Like last week, when for the first time in 8 weeks I skipped my long run, sad face and moving on! To punish myself I’m going to hit me where it hurts the most: my wallet 😀 I have registered to the NYRR virtual trainer. The official 12 week plan for the TCS NYC Marathon! I have only 12 weeks to the marathon! This plan is designed for me, running the days I can run and running as far as I can. Looks good so far!
Monday: 3 miles Regular Run done! Tuesday: 5 miles Intervals (1.5, 5×800,1) I actually did 7×800 and with the little walks in between that was 4.1 miles, I’m still learning this intervals thingamajig Wednesday: 4 miles “As You Feel” (I feel it will be slow) Thursday: Flex Day or Day Off, since I’m working all day it will be a Day Off Friday: Day Off Saturday: 9 miles Long Run Sunday: Day Off
First week schedule is free, I haven’t paid for the rest of the program, but it looks really good to me. I’m doing it!
And talking about spending money I also got new shoes! I did the whole running store experience: run on the treadmill with the camera at your feet so they can tell you what are the best shoes for you. I know I needed to invest in good shoes. But we never discussed price, so when I went to pay for them I was a bit surprised. I still haven’t wore them, I have 30 days to take them back, so cheapster me is still debating if I should take them back ha! I do need good shoes, all my current ones are hurting! I also looked over the internet for the same kind of shoes and I have paid the right amount, is not like they overcharged me. I just never got good running shoes before… and I call myself a runner!
