It's going to be a big year for the marathon. I am going from zero to 60 in that department. I haven't done one since 2010 and I am registered for three this year. I am planning on having Napa & New York be my goal races with Big Sur as a "fun" run.
Run a marathon, hopefully Napa Valley, in under 4:30
Beat my time (3:37) at Wildflower
Triple my 2013 mileage in the water and double my mileage on the bike
Take vitamins daily
Get a consistent morning routine (i.e. morning workouts on the same day each week)
Blog twice a week
Say yes a lot - I really don't have a problem with this one. This is just a reminder since after this year I have a feeling we're going to make some grown up life decisions like houses, kids and all that adult crap. I want make sure I continue my 2013 non-stop fun for AT LEAST another year. In the spirit of this, I've already booked a last minute trip to Nashville this month and I am 3 for 3 on flossing/vitamins. Winning.
Regarding my marathon training, I've had a little set back this week. I am on day 12 now of a nasty cold. I managed to hack/wheeze my way through my 15 miler last weekend in Bend but I paid the price and my cough got way worse. I took it easy until last night when I slogged through 5 miles and in return stayed up all night coughing. I have another 15 on the calendar tomorrow so here's hoping I can manage and my body doesn't say a big FU. MFR also caught the 48 flu that's going around SF and knocks you on your ass, so if that's headed my way I just hope it's after tomorrows run. Have a mentioned how much I hate flu season?
