So OMG, it has now been decided! My good friend and fellow ‘ToneItUpSister’ Franzi and I are running our first half marathon. This will be happening in Germany at the end of April 2012. More direct, in Potsdam just outside Berlin.
The rest of this month we will be reading up on tips and techniques, and get all prepped for our training. We will also find a running schedule that fits us. A good schedule is crucial for a good and steady training. It will be very hard and difficult at times and it’s then important to have a well developed schedule, that we feel comfortable with, to follow. To have someone to train with is essential. Even though she lives in a different country than I we will still have daily contact of our process, keep each other motivated and push each other whenever that’s needed.I think there will be a lot of pushing and butt-kicking. There’s no slacking through workouts. 🙂
When 1st of September arrives we will both be prepped to start our training. I’m imagining sleeping in running clothes and shoes, popping out of bed to rush out for a run in the early hours of the day. This is our official start of the training, it will give us 8 months to get ready for the big day.
We can do this, lets power through!
