This week is literally FLYING by. I cannot believe it is already Thursday!
I'm halfway through my second week of training and I thought I would update you. You can find my training schedule here. I'm running three runs during the week and one long run on the weekends. So far my biggest concern is not running long distances during the week, but if they were longer, I honestly don't know how I would fit them in because I'm not fast at all. I can't dedicate much more time to this so I'm going to try not to worry about it!
Other things I have learned:
- Synthetic socks are a godsend. Both my feet have blisters on the bottom in the middle and the synthetic socks and body glide work wonders. I can't feel them at all when running. Now, if I accidentally forget and wear cotton.... then I'm in trouble. (Did that on Sunday, it was awful).
- The Spibelt/fanny pack thing is awesome. I'm so glad Emily suggested it.
- My new favorite place to run in the Des Moines area is the Clive Greenbelt (which I keep accidentally calling the Grainbelt. lol). Grey's Lake is an old standby and I will always love running there.
