You may have noticed that I have another ticker to the right of your screen.... yes, I will be running another half marathon.  My second to be precise!  I'll be racing on April 22nd.  I feel I am well on the road to be prepared for this race considering I am following a training schedule.  I didn't really follow on last year.  Time got away from me, I didn't build up my mileage slow enough and frankly I just ran (no pun intended) out of time.  The furthest I ran was 13km before my half (which is 21.1km).

This time around I have added ab workout as well, to help strengthen my core.  And my rest days will be that REST!  When I look at the schedule... I know I will be very thankful for those days off.  I have an amazing running partner this year.  Although she is running a full (42.195km - Go Alyson), we will be able to run together once a week.  I know she will push me and be a huge encouragement.  She is also very knowledgeable in fitness and how the body works (although me being a tough Italian hard head girl... I do give her stress when I want to do things my way {which is in fact the incorrect way- but a girl has to try to buck the system a bit - no?} (Alyson would be saying "NO!") I digress...

This is going to be a phenomenal year, I can feel it!  Not just because of my running... but just with more peace that I feel and contentment. 

Happy Running!  Oh and if you think of it ... pray for me that my body can withstand this training and that I do not have any injuries that will hold me back.  Oh and also.... Alyson is running for Mito Canada.. check out her blog: www.proudtobeafitmom.blogspot.com to support her and this awesome cause.
