Leading the pack

Ha! They just posted a few more photos from the marathon and I’m thinking of buying this one because it looks like I’m leading a pack (and beating all of those boys)!

It totally looks like I'm beating all of those boys!

OK – so I see another women in the photo. But still…

Thanks, everyone, for your kind comments on my last post. I was feeling a bit too mentally exhausted to reply to them, but I really appreciate the support!

It’s been a busy, busy week. On Sunday, we booked our Boston trip! I can’t wait and it feels so good to have the trip booked — one more thing to cross off the list. Who else is going to be in Boston for the marathon in 2014?

This week, I also attended the MIMA Summit, a big marketing and technology conference, for work. The highlights were definitely getting to see Nate Silver speak. (I’m a huge nerd and find the kind of stuff he does interesting.) And the opening keynote fromΒ Sarah LacyΒ was pretty awesome.

I have big plans to run later today — the first run since the marathon! Just planning to run a few miles today to test out the hip. I’m sad to say that I can still feel that something isn’t right, but I’m going to give it a shot!

Next week looks a bit more low key and I’m excited because the hubs and I will be celebrating our 2 year anniversary!

Question: does anyone have a good training plan for a 5K? Or good workouts to do if you’re trying to improve your 5K time?

    Love the picture! Bummer our run got rained out. We’ll have to try again another time. Happy Anniversary! πŸ™‚

    I ‘like’ Coach Jenny Hadfield on facebook, and she always posts stuff to her page. She also has a website with free training programmes for all race distances and abilities, check out her website. Also, every year, Runner’s World UK compiles a Complete Guide to Running, which has chapters on EVERYTHING you need to know about running (beginners, cross training, nutrition, motivation, injury prevention, etc). It’s a proper book, not a large magazine. One of the chapters is on races and provides training programmes for each distance; that’s where I got my half marathon plan. Hopefully the US version of the magazine makes something similar? Good luck!
