Now if it would stay Fall year round, I would be super happy.
|Wouldn't this trail be amazing to run on?|
I've had quite a journey to this, my 5th marathon.
Last year I had to cancel 3 marathons because of torn tendons in my ankle.
So, at this marathon, it will have been almost 2 years since my last one. I am so excited about it!
My goal is to finish in 5:30. I would love to do it in 5, but at this time I just don't think that's possible. I gained 20 lbs last year, and feel like I've been killing myself this year to get it off, and it's just not happening. I know that extra weight slows me down. So, if I finish in 5:30, I'll be happy!
For my first couple marathons, I followed the plan religiously. This time around I'm only following the long run day religiously.
Through the week I run when I can, but don't follow the plan. I usually do 10-15 miles through the week. That's what works for me.
This race is flat and fast too. Just the way I like it!
Here's a little throwback to my first marathon.
|I see the finish line!|
Is anyone else training for a marathon?
