I must admit that marathon training is going way better than I thought it would. So far I have successfully rolled with the punches and made changes when needed. I have not missed a run. I am working hard to hit my pace zones and complete my speed work. My body is feeling really good. In fact, my foot is healing. I never ever thought that would happen during a 16 week training plan. I am feeling quite blessed!
Week ten was a recovery week so I only ran 35.5 miles. I think it is hilarious to say that I only ran 30+ plus miles in a week. My long run was 12 miles...again hilarious! The funny thing about this entire process is what now seems long and what almost seems like a waste of clean clothing...again hilarious!
This week I have a time trial. I wonder how fast I can run. I am aiming for sub 7 minute miles. I only have to run that fast for two miles. I can do it or at least I am telling myself that!
The marathon is getting close!
