My long runs have been going really well lately! I dread them all week and they are hard as hell to get through but when I am done I feel like a beast! I haven’t been keeping much of a tally on them but I thought I would give some updates on the past few weeks considering that this blog is supposed to be tracking my marathon training progress!
Remember those movies you watched as a kid and had no idea what they were about, you just found them entertaining? Little Shop of Horrors was one of those for me. I even remember one day telling my older sister that Little Shop of Horrors was on tv. But I was pretty young and not quite proficient with pronouncing the word horrors. She thought I said something else very similar to that and burst out laughing. But anyway, to this day when I am really hungry (which is a lot lately) I say “feed me Seymour!”. (you have to see the movie…)
The absolute BEST part about marathon training is all the eating!! I get to eat all the time. (mostly healthy)
Especially after a long run. I am starving!
Maybe this perk will play into my decision to keep training…Because let’s face it…I have a hard time saying no to food.
