Marathon Training

Yup, it’s official. I’m training for my first marathon! I started this week and I’m thankful to be using the Galloway Method due to the intense humidity in NOLA. Phew! Post run, I’m a thirsty, tired, fatigued and getting headaches. I’ve been chugging nuun and coconut water like it’s going out of style! I think it is helping. I hope. This week I’m “base building” by running 3 miles max. I’m cool with that since I’m still acclimating to the weather here. I have found that hitting the road by 7 am is ideal, and regardless of the distance, I need to bring a TON of water and some nuun. As my distance increases, I will need to start up some salt tabs since I sweat like a pig!

Regardless of the humidity, it’s a great day for running y’all!
