Wow! Been a very busy month of January, new job and some major travel over the last few weeks has slowed down my training and now I’ve got a pretty good chest cold that will slow me down. I have officially registered for the Mississauga Marathon on May 6th.
I’m a little worried about getting all of my training runs in due to a trip to Israel for 2 weeks in March. I’ll have to watch what I eat and get plenty of exercise to ensure I stay in shape. I’ve been super lazy since Christmas and need to drop 7-10 pounds before the race. Now that I have registered for the race my motivation to compete should kick in and I’ll get back on track. This is a Boston Qualifying race but I am not sure I’ll attempt a qualification run at this point. Will depend on training leading up the run as well as race weight. Right now I’m aiming to hit a qualifying time for October in Toronto.
Here’s hoping I kick this cold fast and can get back into a regular training schedule
