You’d be forgiven for forgetting that I’m meant to be training for a marathon since I’ve not really brought up the subject recently, but I really am still planning to participate (and complete) the Loch Ness Marathon in Scotland on 2 October 2011. And now that I’m an unemployed bum living at my mommy and daddy’s, I’m actually getting some training in!
On Monday I did a four-mile run and today I enjoyed an early(ish) morning six-mile run. Then, when I’m at the ocean for a family reunion this weekend, I will do a 10-mile route – though it’s yet to be mapped out. In addition, I’ve been busy with a million other activities such as packing, lifting, and moving; bike riding; and golf. (In fact, I’m playing 18 holes on Friday at the reunion!)
I’ve also picked out my pre-move last American 10K (7 August in Lacey, Washington, if you want to join me) and have registered for my first-ever Scottish race: A gentle 10K in my future home of Stirling.
Oh! And my marathon registration pack has arrived at my friend’s flat, so I guess I’m really doing this thing!
