30 weeks of Marathon training.

just a spot to write about the next 30 weeks….of running.

First week DONE

it was a fairly good week.

I had 2 mid week runs of 3, that went alright, nothing really special.

One day of speed work on the TM  which went better than expected.

and a miserable “long” run of 6 miles.  I did the hilly route, and it was difficult. On top of that…it was super warm and humid this morning.  I struggled.  I don’t think it was my fitness, but actually the humidity and heat.

I looked like these men at various points.

Whats on tap for next week?  Nothing too exciting.

2  Three  mile mid week runs.

1 30 minute tempo run (will be treadmilling that, I am a terrible tempo runner, but the TM is good at setting pace. ha ha)

and a 7 miler.

I’m only worried about the 7 mile run.  The six did not go so well.  But I suspect that there were issues with the heat for me.  I am accepting that as I choose these much more challenging training routes, my time is going to slow down.  But…I know what the reward for this is as well.  MUSCLE and STAMINA!
