Galloway Training Kickoff 2007

It was like the first day of school!! Back from the winter off, getting to see all of my old friends and see what everyone was up to over the break. I forgot my camera, so I have to rely on Davida or Karen to get me pictures.

I skipped the run this year, but I did go to Jeff Galloway's talk at Fleet Feet on Friday night. I got more out of it this year, knowing what I am getting into and such. He answered a lot of questions and talked about the changes to his program. He is changing up the intervals so that we walk more often and go slower on the training runs in order to reduce injury. As part of this, he was discussing how he has some sub-3 hour marathoners in his training program who trained for said sub-3 hour marathons while doing training runs as 12+ minutes per mile. Incredible!! And these same sub 3-hour marathoners ran a marathon that fast while still taking walk breaks!!!!! Holy crap!! I'm impressed with the entire training program, I really am.

I caught up with all of my friends - Debra and SueG are running marathons this year. Caryn is running a half marathon. Davida, Jess, Lori, ErikaM, ErikaW, Andrea... they're all back. And Dianne is back, too!! I'm thrilled and excited and it's really going to be a great year.

So, I'm all signed up. Oh, and I think I've decided that my fall marathon is most definitely going to be Marine Corps. I'll be back for a second try. Now, the only thing to do is wait patiently for training to start in May.
