Slice of Life Day Eight: Ready for Training Days

It's March. It's time to start training for races. It's March. It's time to get out there and hit the roads. It's March. It feels like January!  I am so ready to begin the spring/summer/fall running experience! Will Spring ever come?

I'm registered for the BIG race.   It's not until July, but starting in March helps me to reach my goals.  I like to start out small with only a couple miles of running/walking and go from there. Since the weather has not cooperated, I haven't gotten outside yet. I am still hitting the elliptical for 45 minutes a day, but it isn't the same. My plans are to start running as soon as the ice leaves the roads. I like to start my day early (5:30 a.m.) and do a two mile walk. Then after lifting weights and doing a session on the elliptical, I get out for my run. Later in the day I do a couple more two mile walks and some cardio sessions in the evening. I have plans. Now, I need good weather.

It is getting warmer. It is staying light longer. Spring is coming. It will be time to soon get out and hit the roads.  I am so ready for that Peachtree Road Race in July!


  1. I like the rhythm of your slice which you create by repeating beginnings and whole phrases. It builds momentum that really works with your topic- running and preparing for a race. Good luck.
