Marathon Training - Week 7
I went to a writers workshop last Friday and the instructor wrote her book by blogging. I really love to read blogs and would also like to write a memoir which is what the workshop was about. I am having a tough time getting into the blogging routine so am going to blog daily just about daily thoughts and activities.
The workshop was given by Redberry Books of Cable, WI and featured Laurie Hertzel who wrote News To Me, a memoir about her time at the Duluth News-Tribune. I really want to write about my 16 years running a resort, it's funny, exhausting and sometimes sad. So anyways the suggestion was to write daily about your day so here I am.
Tomorrow is week 7 of Marathon training for the Birkie Trail Marathon in September, it is going to be hot, humid and buggy on the trail but we have 13 miles to run there are 6-8 of us doing different distances. I am getting my water ready, picking out my lightest clothes and looking through my gu and shot blocks. We are going to start around 6:30 am and hopefully will be done by 9. Trail running is slowwww!
I plan on carrying 2 handhelds of water, one with Cytomax(first time I have tried this), 2nd bottle with Nunn which I run with all the time, some shot blocks and 1 packet #9 Gel chocolate(new to me)
Training has gone well and expect tomorrow to go smoothly. This will be my first marathon and if anyone is reading, any advice would be appreciated.
See you on the trail!
