Nice Leisurely Pace

Well, I made a BIG decision for myself yesterday.  I decided to be a Team Beachbody Coach.  I figure that is a good way to start investing in myself to get a health and fitness career (ultimate dream/goal) without a huge time investment.  It is also not a huge money investment which I would have becoming certified.  So if you would like more information about any programs, becoming a coach, or even shakeology (which I am going to use to give it a test run before I really plug it), you can go here.

Now that is all I am going to say about that at this point. 

After yesterday's speedwork, I was hurting a little.  I had on the schedule an easy run.  I just wanted to get out there, keep my legs loose and moving, and add more mileage to the week.  I know that I am not in the official training for Columbus yet, but I am enjoying the running, and I DO want to meet all of my goals for Columbus. 

So today I left my house at 4:45 am planning on running 4 miles at just faster than 10mins/mile.  When I reached 3 miles, I kind of made the decision that I was not going to be done at 4.  So I turned down a street into a sub division, and kept on going.  I ended up covering about 6 miles (just over that!) in 59:39.  That means I did the miles at an average pace of 9:55, which is right within my "easy pace" range from the McMillan calculator.  Anyone notice how I am really working hard to focus on using all of that stuff as best as I can!?  I really want to make my goal. 

Next week I should be getting Turbo Fire in the mail, and so I plan to create a plan for training for the marathon around turbo + the running.  I am curious about how that will all work together, but I am hoping that it will be thorough and help me get strong, get lean, and reach my marathon goals!
