Olivia's Marathon Misadventures

Time For Happy Hour(s)!!

After an impressive run last night and a very good run this a.m. before the training work out, I am off to enjoy some adult beverages, in fact, these beverages will be two for the price of one. A lovely invention.

So, I do have to run tomorrow a short 3 miles. I am still a little behind on milage this week, but I can feel a significant difference in my strength. Last night's run was just what I needed to feel like I am making some progress! 4.2m in 41 minutes. That may not seem so impressive to some, but that is a big freaking deal to me. Plus, my last 0.7m was a snail's pace, so I know my splits had to be pretty brisk. This morning, I ran 2m in 19 minutes, so that was encouraging too. For all the fancy, seasoned runners who read this, it may not seem all that interesting. But you have to understand, this is a big big deal for me. I finally feel like, "Wow, I am not going to a) freaking die or b) be a failure at running."

This morning's workout was great! I woke up at 3:30a for no particular reason, so I was bored and ready to roll by the time my alarm went off at 4:25. I was at the gym minutes before it opened and was able to have that quick run. The training session was 45 minutes of tossing a medicine ball. SO FUN! Strange reaction, no? It was just like being in gym class. Which is even stranger because I HATED gym as a child. I was a fat child.

OK - It's Miller Time!


  • Drink one for me!

    And yes, FUN is a strange reaction to the training this morning!

    By the way, my pictures are working now. The blog makes a lot more sense with the pictures!

  • Hey! I guess you're training for CMM? Cool! What part of town do you live in, maybe we could all run together sometime!

    I did the half last yr and hubby and I are doing the half again this year. It's a blast!
