I just finished my day two workout: a 3 mile run today. I again started with 10 minutes of stretching and 5 minutes of a walking warm-up. I'm so glad I have almost 9 months to train and prepare for the big race. I'm starting think that the most difficult part is going to be controlling my mind and thoughts. Last night and this morning I've been researching positive self-talk and runner's mantras online. More on this later.
The *new* treadmill is awesome! It's a 200% improvement over my old one. It is like new, has a much wider treadbelt and a lot more features. What a blessing that we were given it by some very generous people at just the right time!
