I won the lottery!
Before you get excited, let me just say: I entered the Cherry Blossom 10 Mile Lottery. This is not to be confused with the lottery that has a huge prize purse that is only marginally attainable. Instead of a prize purse, I received an entry into the Cherry Blossom 10 Mile Race. Pick your pleasure, right?
From the Cherry Blossom website, it looks as though approximately 1/2 to 3/4 of the lottery's entrants were granted an entry.
Woohoo! Go, me!
No, seriously. Now, I have to go. As in run. As in train. To be able to run 10 miles again.
It shouldn't be too hard. I've got oodles of time. (The race is in April.) Plus, I've been entertaining my muscles with Pilates to get them strong. I did a 30 minute run yesterday without it being a big issue, which is a great start!
So, the plan is basically:
3 miles - December
5-7 miles - January
8-10 miles & speed work - February
10-12 miles & speed work - March
Race - April
Woop-woop! Back on the wagon.
nowhere to go but up. (Part II)
