Earlier this week when it was perfectly clear, bright and sunny, and 50 degrees outside, I was going to make a bold move and declare the official start to my inline marathon training season. With the winter we haven't had here in northern Wisconsin this year, I figured I'd be skating in 3-4 weeks. I have big plans this year - 2 (perhaps 3) marathons. I am also shooting for 1:30 in the St. Paul marathon. Big plans and lots of training to do. I simply can't wait!!!
Looks like I will have to wait to put on my skates though. It is 9:14 am here in Wisconsin, approximately 9 hours from the start of our first major winter storm of the season - 18 inches of snow expected by Sunday.
But still, its official...the 2007 Inline Racing Training Season has begun. I have much "dryland" work to do like strengthening my core muscles, shedding some fat tissue, and renewing good eating habits.
I have intense leg and cardio sessions planned for this weekend...pulling my kids around in circles in the red sled.
