Hooray, I'm finally getting real mileage in for the year! I feel good about how many miles I ran, but not as good about the fact that my pace was slower than 2010. That hasn't happened in a while. I don't even have a reason as to why that happened, except that we had a really hot May this year, so maybe that had something to do with it.
We're a few weeks into our Marathon training program here in Baltimore, and it's going very well so far. I have a lot of people who will be running their first full marathons, and a few who are running their second ones. I'm excited for them!
Like I said in an earlier post, I've stopped all cross training except biking, which I'm trying to do once per week. In the meantime, I'm working on getting myself organized and keeping my house clean. That part is going very well, too, although I admit I'm behind right at this moment because Todd and I spent Memorial Day in Ocean City (Maryland) and work has been a bit crazy this week. I want to do a little post on my lists and the house and that sort of thing, so hopefully I can do that later this week.
Biking is going very well also. It's strange, but apparently being on the bike trainer over the winter really helped my confidence. I am no longer having fears of running into stationary objects. This is good. Todd and I even did a ride in Ocean City on Monday. Todd a bike rack so that we can fit both of our bikes into the back of our car. This is a big deal - we no longer have to take two cars to the trail! Hooray!! Check it out:
Other than that, I'm just going about my business. I've got to check up on blogs to see what everyone else has been up to this month...
