Feeling Excited

I was reading my friend KT's blog (mom on the run link ... cool blog) and she must be going into week 4 of her training schedule, following 'The Non-Runner's Marathon Guide'. I'm watching her mileage increase and I'm getting excited for her.

I'm reminded of my first few weeks of training where I was seriously taking it 'One Day at a Time' for fear of looking ahead and freaking myself out and wanting to quit.

I've decided that this should be week one of training, though I still haven't figured out for what. I can honestly say that I'm eagerly looking forward to my long runs, I know what's coming and I say BRING IT ON!!!

That is like one of the best help books I've read and I'm only to week 3.. I figured I'd read it now and then again after my bodybuilding show in May, when I begin training - well ok after that first week in May since we are going to the Bahamas after the competition.

But I have to admit, that the other weekend w/run club when I did 4.4 miles IT seemed long so I can imagine how its gonna feel when I start going longer!

But like your blog says One Day at a Time right!

Amber, I love the energy and exuberance of your blog. Week One of training sounds great! For what? If nothing else, for LIFE, baby!
