HUM... THIS DOESN'T START WELL!

So, it's week 1 of marathon training and total miles ran is 0. =(

Everyone I know is sick or starting to feel sick so it's no surprise, with my super immune system that I caught that cold. I'm thinking a cold on week 1 is better than marathon week so I've been resting and waiting for it to go away. I just started to sleep better last night as my nose is not stuffed up anymore. I missed the weekday runs but I will do my long run on Saturday (9 miles). I'm still hesitating between 2 plans. Hal Higdon marathon training plan Novice 2 tweaked to run only 3 times a week and the FIRST plan. Considering that I'm starting this training late and that I'm in the middle of intense lab work and writing my thesis, running 3 times a week will be an achievement itself!

Yesterday was Halloween and although I did not dress up this year. I dressed my pooch for his nightime walk. It was only a hat but he was sooooo cute!! As you can see with this picture, Rocky does not seem too impressed....


Have a good week-end everyone! =)

LMAO!! I love little Rocky!! How cute, cute, cute!!!

I was looking at FIRST's marathon plan, the whole 5-20 miler thing is a little scary to me. But you're an ole pro, it's like cake, right? ;-)

Get better! I'm trying to avoid my sick colleagues but I'm thinking it'll be inevitable...

FIRST plan looks interesting. I'm going to take a look at it seriously.

He looks like he's having fun. My book on the FIRST plan was delivered today. The book is pretty helpful. It has a lot of useful information on different things in it. The runs seem a bit tough though since the pace that that ask you to run at are a bit fast.

Thanks for your comments guys!

Fran: I don't have the book but I looked at the program online. 2 runs at paces near 10K speed is going to be quite the challenge. I'm going to decide this week-end after I have more time to look at it.

I have the sickness too. I guess it's better now than two weeks ago, huh?

Your pooch is too cute!
