Thanks are in order to my husband Ernesto for fixing my hacked blog here and getting me off to yet another fresh start. I haven’t been making time for blogging but to my credit I’ve been busy with a host of other things, running still very much being one of them. I recently joined our local running club and have been taking part in interval training with them at the track. This is the first year I have included speed work in my training and after six weeks I’ve already seen a difference in my performance. I added a new PR to my list of goals for this spring at the Concord Rock N’ Race 5K, and that was also the first time I ran for charity, which was long overdue. I haven’t quite decided what my new goals are for the rest of this year. Struggling with whether or not I want to do yet another 1/2 marathon. I find the training for it difficult to fit into my schedule and sometimes I feel like if I’m going to work that hard and put in so many miles I may as well just train for a full so I can finally say I’ve done it. I wouldn’t be aiming for any particular time- finishing it would be the goal, for sure.
Life is hectic around here, but fun. We’ve got end of year school business to finish up, a house and garden that both need a lot of tending to, writing and artwork being produced left and right and two parents who somehow find the time to fit some running in here and there. Ernesto just completed two marathons within six weeks of each other (the Boston Marathon and Vermont City Marathon) and amazingly pulled it off, finishing Boston at a blazing 3:12:49 and Vermont at 3:13:06. He felt great after Vermont and had about the best time at a race that he’d ever had, running for the Stonyfield team with three other friends.
More to come soon, but I just wanted to get an update in here to smooth out my blogging chops a bit.
Run strong out there.
