So, I've been just barely keeping my head above water at work for the last few months. I think by June, things will slow down a little and I can catch my breath.
Which is good because my official training period for Chicago starts on Monday, June 4th. Heaven help me, that's just 6 weeks away and I am in pretty awful shape at the moment. I've been working out 3 days a week consistently but that is nowhere near enough given the training workload ahead of me. Time to kick it into gear - and somehow carve more time out of my schedule to fit in another day of running.
Also, I picked up a "groupon/living social" type deal around here for a 4-week women's fitness bootcamp. Starts mid-May, Monday-Thursday, 5:30-6:30 a.m. Heaven help me with that too, because I'm not really a morning person. What can I say, I got sucked in by the good price. And having someone kick my butt 4 days a week is a good thing. :-)
Lastly, the lottery for the NYC Marathon is next Wednesday. And again, Heaven help me if I get selected for it, because at that price, I'll probably feel obligated to run it rather than deferring to 2013.
Wow, asking lots of favors from Heaven today. :-)
