Lately, she's been tempting me to join her again this coming October for another east coast double-header. However, I don't think October is likely to pan out for me. Instead, I'm thinking of crashing her upcoming March trip to the land where peaches reign: a trip to run the GEORGIA HALF MARATHON.
The idea of getting to see bloggy friend Elizabeth (and maybe Kia or even possibly some co-workers I've been dying to meet?) may be too much to pass up. The timing is perfect with Kim heading out there.
It's crazy and
I feel guilty even thinking of it because...
in February we're taking a big family vacation.
I'm already going to be absent many Saturday mornings between now & April 28th for marathon training long runs.
my husband and I just don't travel separately except for work. Not typically. Just not our thing.
it's the same weekend as a close friend's 40th birthday.
I have enough points for a RT airline ticket.
I would be gone for just a weekend.
it would be SO MUCH FUN!!
Need to think on this...
***MARATHON TRAINING UPDATE***
In other news, marathon training week 2 went ok. I'm really grateful for the comments last week on my plan. I am definitely thinking of adding another 20-miler but still want to see how this first month of increased mileage goes. This week, I missed one "easy" run but got in:
- 3 strength/fitness workouts
- easy 2 mile run
- 5 mile speedy run
- 12 mile long run
This coming week I have two easy runs (3, 5 mi), one tempo run (6 mi), one long run (11 mi) along with the strength & cross training.
***I'M SO FREAKING EXCITED BIGGEST LOSER IS BACK!***
And love that Jillian is BACK! Is anyone else giddy too? I'm so glad they've brought kids on the show but I'm curious to see how they handle them emotionally & physically, and how they protect them (I hope) from being completely exposed on national television.
