Hyland Post #17 - watching the weight and the races

Rest day on the schedule today.


Here's a recap of week #16 of 18 weeks of marathon training:

Miles Run:  33.49 miles
Days Run:  5 days
Cross Training:  None
Time Training:  4 hours and 43 minutes


As you can see, my mileage this week went down over 10 miles for the week.  I had a fairly easy running schedule that reduced my mid week longer run to 6 miles.  I did another half marathon yesterday at the Glass City Marathon in Toledo, Ohio.  It was a great event.  I'll have a detailed review tomorrow.  In the meantime, I'm looking forward to another reduced week of running with only 24 miles planned for the week.  Even my long run is only 8 miles this weekend.  Piece of cake!!!

If I have time, I might go and spectate at a local race in Mt. Clemens.  It's the Let's Move Festival of Races.  I'm not a big fan of the race, but I do enjoy spectating once in awhile and since I can't join them, maybe I'll watch.  I usually bring my big Cow Bell - you know, the one from Saturday Night Live?

The next week will be another nice break in the lower miles.  It's hard to believe in less than two weeks I'll be running marathon #3 in State #2.  Another thing that I do is watch what I'm eating more since I'm not running in excess of 40 miles a weeks now.  I don't want to tack on anymore weight than I have already gained through training.  Actually, I've only gained about 3 pounds during the training - hopefully most of it being muscle.  Ha, yeah, right!

Have a great day and....Keep Running!!!!
