So tomorrow marks the end of my first week of marathon training. Total miles so far? Four. And that was Friday. On a treadmill.
I guess participating in a mud run with an existing sore calf and some sexy shin splints was not totally sensible, but it was totally fun. I’ll hopefully be able to push that number into double figures tomorrow, and I wont have a choice next week as I’m registered for the Stonehaven half marathon, but it doesn’t change the fact that I’m pretty bummed I haven’t had the flying start I’d hoped for. I have been hitting the gym (2 Body Pump classes, 3 spin classes) so it’s not like I’ve been sitting on my sofa stuffing my face with cheese in a tube.
Anyway, I present you with a photo a friend spotted on Facebook of the start of the Ythan Challenge. She downloaded it, so I have no idea who to give credit to for the actual photo-taking skills, but if you took the photo, and you’re reading this (unlikely), let me know and I’ll splatter your name in the caption!
