Well, I will post more often on here, so as not to bog down Marathon Mommies with too much info about me. :-) I am looking forward to this week. I am beginning the Cool Running Intermediate Marathon training schedule. Newport Marathon is 21 weeks away. The schedule is 20 weeks long so I will probably repeat a cut back week closer to the marathon. We are thinking about running Yakima Canyon River Marathon on April 1st as a long "training run." We will see... Anyway, my goals for the year are to keep running (obviously!) and see how the heart rate training helps. I love my Garmin watch and I really want to use it to keep me training slower. Tomorrow's run of 4 miles I am going to try to keep my heart rate under 150. We will see how it goes. I am so excited to do Newport again! I can't wait to redeem my time!
