Tonight, the training started. The Countdown to Madrid has begun!
OK, so between now and then there’s the small matter of a wedding, but for this evening, my mind is firmly on Madrid! 🙂
Following yesterday’s rest day, my training plan called for a nice, easy 3 miler, which @TheWelshWookie and I did around the harbour as usual. It felt great! I forgot to set my Hal Higdon app, but I was able to enter my info manually.
Tonight, I’m going to settle down with my Madrid guidebook, and begin planning our post-race festivities!
Have you ever been to Madrid? Any ‘must do’s’ I should know about?

Sounds very exciting! And exotic to an Australian…running in Spain, wow.
I’m so excited about it! 🙂
Lucky you! I was in Madrid years ago. All I can remember was eating great (and reasonably) priced food every night. Chocolate and churros for breakfast. And the Museum Reina Sofia (?) was awesome.
Fantastic- that’s on my list. Can’t wait for the churros! 🙂
I’ve never been to Madrid….but I feel I should! Yay, of your new training! 😉
Thanks! Don’t worry, I’ll bore you with so many pics, it’ll feel like you were there! 🙂
So exciting! Wedding AND a run tourist event!
I know- ticks more than one box! Wheeeeeee!
Really REALLY looking forward to both blog posts! One day I would like to go running abroad and always up for a lovely wedding post!
Yay! I’ll be sharing plenty of both! 😀
I’ll be looking out for your tips; I may be running that race as well!
Ooh, great! Hopefully see you there! 😉
I’ve never been. Do you follow Feet From Shore? She’s from Spain and may be able to help you.
I don’t, but I’ll go look her up: thanks!
I entered that race too, but I’m not if I’ll go.
You should definitely visit (or go for a nice run) El Retiro Park, a great place in the heart of the city.
I work between Madrid and Seville, you should have tapas at El Mercado de San Miguel, really good food and wine.
Fantastic, thank you for the suggestions!
