Oh I almost forgot I have a blog here, sorry ;)
Of course I’m still running! I’m currently on Day 19 of the Runner’s World Run Streak (#rwrunstreak). It started on Thanksgiving and goes through New Years Day. I’m also redoing the 10k trainer (by Zen Labs) to work on speed, and it’s been helping!
I got some new running shoes – Newton Fate. So far I really like them! The lugs aren’t as pronounced as on my previous pair of Newtons (Distance U), which makes them much better for doing intervals. I wanted to get a couple more pairs of my beloved Pure Flow 2s, but I can’t find them in my size anywhere :(
I also got the new Polar M400 GPS watch. It’s got a built in activity tracker and beeps to remind me to get up and move. I haven’t used the GPS on it yet since I’ve been doing all my running on the treadmill. And unfortunately, the M400 is not foot-pod capable yet, although that is supposed to be updated shortly. So I’m still using my Garmin as well. I’m thinking that I kinda jumped the gun on ordering it, but (hopefully) once I can use the foot pod with it, it will become my all-in-one fitness gadget!
Oh, and it looks like marathon training will begin again in February! I’m hoping that having my virtual running buddy, Tammy, training along with me, will get me over that hump where I chicken out and give up! And the marathons we have picked are on the same weekend in June! I’ve already got a rough draft of our training plan, which is a conglomeration of 3 different plans (Galloway, NMA, & RW Smart Coach), with some of my own tweaking added in. I’ll share it once I have it finalized.
