Chicago here I come...again!
I am so excite to run Chicago Marathon for the 3rd time this October! I was doubting I got in via lottery but I did! There will be lots of celebrating for various reasons and I will get into that closer to time!
But for now, I plan on blogging my journey to Chicago.
I am going to run/walk this one and see what happens. I found a plan by Jenny Hadfield that I olan on following and it started today! Its a 20 week plan. I also plan on "training" my weight. I weighed today and am at my highest weight. I wanted to use Hansons again but decided not too. It was so intense and I loved it last summer but realized that after my marathon last October that I can only go so fast no matter how hard I trained due to my weight. I am going to save my hard hard training for when I actually might see improvements when I weigh less. I am going to put my weight loss efforts into "training" too. Therefore, run/walk it is. I hope to see faster times as I lose weight. I also plan on putting hill repeats and some other strength training into it. We shall see.
I wil put a link at top of page for my weigh ins. I will weigh in on Monday and my goal is to not weigh everyday to keep my sanity. I tend to go weigh in crazy if I weigh in more.
so, here we go! Excited!!
