Mid-winter race registration freak out.

I'll get to that part...but let me start with another excuse.

Last year it was injuries - this year it's been illnesses.  Miss N started Pre-K3 this fall and y'all...I have never been so sick in my life as I've been these past 5 months.  The most recent one earned me an prescribed inhaler.


Now I know you don't know me that well, but let me just mention a few things about me.  My lung capacity is almost legendary in my family (who spent most of her early years crying the loudest and longest of 6 cousins? ) and I've been a swimmer nearly all my life.  And while posts here don't reflect what I've been doing - I had been running kinda regularly until September.

Then I became Charles Henry Warren to Miss N's Typhoid Mary...  I've finally (mostly) recovered 

So here I am - in February itching to run but snowed in.  On Miss N's 3rd straight snow day, I snapped and registered for a 5K two weeks from now, a 5 miler in April and on Mother's Day, a 5K in July and August, the Zooma Cape Cod Half Marathon in September and plan on the Army 10 Miler in October.  

Great - but now I have to train for all this! Way to go cabin fever girl...

So what I'm doing right now is stretching my legs a bit by running at the gym since its so icy out.  I ran 2.5 miles just yesterday so while the 5K won't be pretty - but it'll be doable.  Once I get past that - I'm going to concentrate on a long-view training plan with Zooma as the goal.
