My First Marathon – Finally
This journal starts today, writing about how I will finally run my first Marathon. It has been years running, intermittent due work, travel, others and I must include procrastination.
11 years ago, I run my first 10K race, with my best recorded time 50:50, and 10 years ago my first half marathon with a neat 1:59:50. In other words it has been 10 years in multiple attempts to get in shape for running a marathon. Well, it is time to start again, but this time I will run it.
Time has been set, February 28th 2021, at the Publix Atlanta Marathon
I will be following Hal Higdon’s 18-week Marathon training , so my official starting week will be October 26th. The table shows the distances in kilometers and miles, and the training week contemplates 4 running days and one extra day for other type of activities (trekking, walking, biking, stand up paddling, etc), and I will be also updating it with the activities and pace on each training day.
There is a lot of people to thank here for motivating me and encouraging me to do it. To name a few: Marcos Nicolaides, Iliana Mauri, Barbara Silva, Iron Cowboy , and others. I have also to include here Baggual , supporting me all the way.
From now until the official training begins, I will be running at the current cadence I have of 5.6 miles from Tuesday to Thursday and extra millage on Saturdays and Sundays.
