I'm really enjoying my running. Its fantastic to be putting in the hard work and dedication and being able to see results. Today I did my first 8km run, who would have thought!! Just a couple of months ago I was running 2km at best.

Having a training partner certainly helps. Wayne has been awesome, he's been running for about 2 years and has completed a few marathons. He's so willing to pass on his knowledge and to encourage and support me. We are running at 5am during the week, 4 times a week. Weekends are used for longer runs, and I need to get in some cross training soon. Swimming is a good cross trainer,.

Having a training schedule is helpful. It keeps me focused and goal orientated. I am doing my first half marathon in July, at the Knysna oyster weekend. That's 10weeks away, and I'm happy to report that I am ahead of my schedule. It is so good to be able to see my progress. Last week I did 31km for the week. Whoop whoop!!!

I've been searching some blogs, and will be back soon with some inspiration from the web.

How is your training going?
