It's hard to believe, but three months from now I WILL have finished my 2nd marathon with my amazing friend Wendy by my side!
This week went a lot better than last week. I got my miles in, but due to the extreme heat we've been experiencing, they were all dreadmill (treadmill) miles. I planned on getting up early this morning and beating the heat to go out for my seven mile walk/jog, but stayed out too late last night hanging out with friends so I didn't get up in time. Worth it? Yes... time with friends is valuable and I'm glad to have spent the time with them.
Right now, with my training I feel like the most important thing is getting the miles in and making sure I stretch and do the physical therapy for my plantar fasciitis. How fast I get the miles done isn't of concern to me right now. Even at my snail pace today my heel is bothering me quite a bit. I need to be more disciplined in my stretching and therapy for my foot. That seems to be a theme in my life - needing to be more disciplined! I'll get there... one step at a time! :-)
