The training plan has started. Five miles in today with the BRC Women's Fit Team on the trail. Lovely weather - 70+, slight overcast with some brief drizzle, and lots of new and old faces. It was a great day to start off the 16 weeks. I was amazed that I had 5 miles in me. I haven't ran in almost a month I'm guessing and really didn't want to push myself, but I needed to see what I could do if I pushed it. Oh did I push it!
I ordered the P90X a few weeks ago, but I haven't started it. I will just as soon as my family gets on their ways back home. The thought of taking the before pictures or doing the fit test while they're still here gives me shivers. I'm ready to do the workouts and want to get a PR at the Denver Marathon in October. Determination! Dedication! And right now Exhaustion!
Have you started off your training plan with good intentions and then didn't follow through? How did it hurt or help your race?
