Marathon Training- Week 1 + Ice Cave Adventures

Marathon training officially kicked off this week!

unnamed-2

As most of you know – I am training for Grandma’s Marathon in Duluth, MN this coming June.  I am so excited to check this goal off my list and experience the excitement that is the marathon.  I am starting slow as my running has been sporadic at best lately.  Following the ever popular Hal Higdon Training Program, week 1 started with three, 3-mile runs during the week and a 6-mile long run on Saturday.

While week 1 included some struggles (I think that’s typical when you are adjusting to a training program… right?), overall I’d say it was a great first week.  Aside from some slight pain in my right knee, my body felt good and seems to be adjusting well to training mode.

In addition to running, we also had some fun this weekend exploring the Haines “ice caves.”  It was really a waterfall that froze, but Piper referred to them as ice caves and who am I to correct her?!  Especially with how excited she was. 😉

In other news – anyone else watching the Olympics?!  We just watched the ice dancing competition and OMG CANADA!  Scott Moir and Tessa Virtue literally have me in tears.  AMAZING.  Also Mirai Nagasu (U.S.).  SO GOOD!  I love the Olympics.

And some pictures from my run/ our hike this weekend…  Alaska is pretty.

    I cling on to listening to the news broadcast lecture about receiving free online grant applications so I have been looking around for the most excellent site to get one. Could you tell me please, where could i get some?

    Thanks for your posting. One other thing is the fact that individual American states have their particular laws that will affect people, which makes it very difficult for the the nation’s lawmakers to come up with the latest set of recommendations concerning foreclosed on people. The problem is that every state has got own legislation which may have impact in an unfavorable manner in regards to foreclosure procedures.

    Thanks for the concepts you write about through this web site. In addition, lots of young women that become pregnant never even try and get medical care insurance because they worry they wouldn’t qualify. Although a lot of states right now require that insurers present coverage despite the pre-existing conditions. Charges on all these guaranteed options are usually higher, but when taking into consideration the high cost of medical care it may be a safer strategy to use to protect the financial future.
