McCabe’s TNT LA Marathon Training Journal: Week 1 & 2

I remember after the San Diego Marathon in June while sitting in a tub full of ice after completing 26.2 miles thinking to myself, “yep I’m good….no more marathons for me.”  Well… I’m happy to report, that was a lie.  Since then I’ve completed the Disney Half Marathon with LLS, numerous 5K & 10K’s and now the Las Vegas Half Marathon this weekend in….yep you guessed it VEGAS!

With that said I am also BACK with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team In Training for the LA Marathon on March 17th.   Woohoo St. Patty’s Day!  Once again I’ll be raising money to help find cures and more effective treatments for blood cancers.  Since training & raising money with LLS you have helped me raise over $4,300 Dollas! Holla!  I want to Thank YOU for donating, those who continue to donate and that individual who maybe just thought about donating.

Now this Marathon season I switched it up from the West Side Team to the SFV TNT Spring Team.  Both are fantastic teams and Thank YOU West Side for getting me through my first Half and Full Marathons, you rule.

My first practice for the LA Marathon was at Balboa Park.  We started at about 7am and we all got to know our team (team pic below).  After some quick ice breakers and a few announcements we started our running.  The first practice the coaches really just want to get a feel for your running, so it was a light 2 mile jog through the park.  As the weeks go on the mileage will definitely go up and I will keep you posted on it all!

Oh and since I was out of town for week 2’s practice I continued my training up in Northern Nevada.  I joined my brother and our buddy Joey Gilbert for the Sparks Turkey Trot 10K.   You best believe after those 6 miles the feasting was on!

Just like in previous Marathon seasons I’ll be using as a bit of a running journal.  So, hang out and share your training stories in the comments too!  Have you done a Marathon? Thought about it?  Just want to run? I want to hear it all.
