So I did it...
I signed up for the Chicago Marathon.
Forked over my $175, dealt with the drama of the active.com server overload that was signing up and committed to 26.2 miles.
The marathon is an idea I've toyed with for a long time, and I figured with a summer in Chicago coming up, and a summer of working and not studying for the bar, there's no better time than now to train and run 26.2 miles.
And it's been good so far. Not that training has really happened yet. But I am half-marathon training right now and that's going well.
I'm in a clinic this semester that really focuses on goals and written reflection. And its made me miss this space. So I'll try and come back.
I'm still doing the same interesting things- running, baking, baby-lawyering.
I just would like to do a little more writing.
So recap for the week:
Sunday - REST DAY
Monday - 4 super easy with a friend. Early morning run in the sunshine. Love it
Tuesday - 55 min spin class
Wednesday - 3 miles treadmill watching HOMELAND (just started. Pretty obsessed already)
Thursday - Rest day #2
Friday - 30 min arc trainer cross (more homeland watching)
Saturday - 7 miles, 29*, race-ish pace.
And the plan:
MON - 4 miles outside easy
TUES - spin
WED - yoga
THURS - run 3
FRI - barre
SAT - 8 outside in the (fingers crossed) gorgeous weather
