Back in the Saddle Again
Training is back on and you know- it's not easy. I'm almost all healed from a case of shin splints and there are eight weeks until the marathon. Marathon training requires more than just running; there is proper nutrition to follow, sleeping requirements, injuries to nurse and the biggest challenge- TIME! Time is sucked up by the miles to be put in weekly. For the majority of the weekly runs I am gone for an hour at a time. However, come the long run on weekends- I can be gone for three hours and I haven't even hit my 20 mile day. The side effects of training set aside- I love it. I love running. I love training for a goal. I'm hooked.
