Training is Not for Wusses


I bought a training plan today!  I am super excited and already started playing around with all the cool features on the site.  I opted for Runner’s World Personal Trainer Break 3:30 Marathon plan!  Yikes, can I do it? We shall see.  I’m nervous but also really excited to take this leap and see how I can fare.  The plan moving forward–starting Monday I’m starting a six-week plan (using my Runner’s World Smart Coach application on my iPhone) that will get me to 10 miles, the base for the marathon plan.  Then August 1st, I embark on my 16-week plan that will test my limits!  Where I used to write everything in a notebook will now be done in my online account.  I am thrilled to use this opportunity to track my food intake, my routes and so much more.  Till then be excited for me…I’m going to need some cheerleaders along the way!

About mileoneandcounting

I'm a young professional living in the Washington, DC area. Since moving here in 2007 I have honed a passion for running and fitness. Growing up I played soccer and softball (and tested track & field for one year). After college I ran a few 5K races, but running was really only a means to staying in shape for me. Never in my wildest imagination had I thought I'd ever run a marathon, let alone three. Nor did I think I'd get the running bug after doing so, but I'll admit I'm hooked! Over the years my blog has grown into so much more than a running blog though. Sometimes I have deep thoughts. Other times I'm simply sharing a training story or a review of a product. Here's the place where you'll learn about me through my many adventures--even I enjoy going back to re-read some posts from time to time. I've also been able to hone my love for health and wellness through my business called IDLife which stands for Individually Designed Life. I'd love to help inspire you to live your best life yet so please don't hesitate to reach out to me and may my words resonate with you. See you on the trails...

    This is so exciting! Which race are you training for? (I’m hoping you say Philly–we can have a Philly party this year!!)
