Everyone has been very supportive of my running, which is good, because Marine Corps Marathon training kicked off on Monday! It's hard to be believe the official training has really begun. I remember in May, June, I just thought I had so much time to prepare. And I did, but it really flew by.
Today, I ran the ladder (400, 800, 1200, 1600, 1200, 800, 400):
Pretty decent times, although I definitely should've held back slightly in the first half, so I could've gotten better splits. Oh well - it was my first time doing that workout, so I'm sure I'll have better times next time around.
Since I need to be close to my job, I've just been on the track, which I realize is not entirely beneficial. I'm hoping that in a few weeks I'll be able to get more off-campus runs in. But, at least I'm running!
