The 2014 Dick’s Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon (that’s a mouthful, isn’t it? <<—- Also, that’s what she said) was 4 days ago and I am still riding high from my experience. I set a very unexpected PR in the half marathon, and that really reignited my passion for this sport.
2013 was a pretty lackluster running year for me, but I feel like I’m getting my mojo back. I’m registered to run the Air Force Marathon, September 20 in Dayton, Ohio, and I am really excited about this.
Training starts in a few short weeks, and in the meantime I’m going to
attempt to make some much needed changes to my diet, and (re) incorporate some strength training into my routine. I know that my nutrition is going to make a huge difference in the quality of my workouts and will hopefully help me shed some of this extra fluff that has accumulated around my mid-section.
My next post will be all about the changes I’m making, the plan that I’ll be following during my downtime, and what I’ll be doing during marathon training.
I love hearing how other runners eat to fuel their workouts and training, so tell me, what’s a normal day of eats like during your training? What about during your off season? Favorite treat or indulgence?
