I made a plea a couple weeks ago about the need for a plan for my next marathon in March. I got some great feedback from some friends (Thanks Jill and Taryn!) and so far things are going well. I have suffered in the past from IT band and peroneal issues so I am treading very lightly while ramping up my running. The one thing that I am doing differently is that I am taking the time after every run to stretch. I know you are thinking “Duh Becca!” but I have never been good about this part of training. I want this Ironman next year and I want it bad. I will only get there if I get serious about my training. I hope to keep steadily increasing my weekly mileage and staying injury free over the next month. Then it is time to get my marathon training going. Wish me luck!
