The training has begun.

I was nine months pregnant with my youngest little man when I had this crazy idea of running The Crim. It seemed like a wonderful was just over a year away. Sometimes, I dream way too big. So, this deal that I made with myself when I was crazy out of my mind, I am actually going through with. Some days, ten miles seems doable. Others, it seems like an impossible thing. I started training on Monday...not like I would like to, but hopefully that global warming thing will hit here soon and I can get outside and run everyday. I have changed up my diet and added weights also. Looking at the training schedule that I am following (not so closely), I can't believe that it's going to get me up to running 10 miles. It seems too relaxed. So, I guess I am going to do somewhere between the advanced run and the beginner run schedule. I have a feeling that new shoes are in my near future. After a long run, the bottoms of my feet have been falling asleep. I am going to try and hold out until the weather warms up...I am hoping that is coming SOON!

I was wondering when I would need to get some new shoes too, I've noticed my foot going numb again. I still think you're crazy and out of your mind for wanting to do this with me ;o We should go to the Running Depot sometime and look at shoes.
