I began my official Honolulu marathon training tonight. At least, I’m calling my 25 minutes on the treadmill the beginning of my training because it sounds more fun that way! I have yet to make up a schedule but I’ll get to that this weekend. I’ve decided that I’m going to begin my first two weeks by running every other day so as not to shock my body too much, and see how that feels. My goal tonight was to monitor my heart rate and see where I’m at physically after traveling and not running much. We went to the gym before dinner and I set the pace to a steady 10 minute mile. I had to re-train my feet which direction to face because my left heel kept making its way toward my right inner ankle and kicking it! I fixed that fast so I wouldn’t be bruised, then relaxed into my run.
