Here's a recap of week #17 of 18 weeks of marathon training:
Miles Run: 24.14 miles
Days Run: 5 days
Cross Training: None
Time Run: 3 hours and 27 minutes
This past week was another taper week. My weekly runs have reduced in length and my last long run that I did on Saturday was only 8 miles and I tried to throw in a few more hills. That's it - I'm pretty much ready or not to run the Flying Pig. I've only got three runs this week including today's 4 miler, a 3 and 2 miler then I'm resting for Thursday through Saturday. The big day is Sunday at 6:30am.
I'll use the rest days to
worry like crazy try and calm myself and be mentally prepared to run a good race. I'm still freaking about the hills - I should have trained on more hills but what's done is done.
I'll post a recap of the race next week as well so you can see how I did or didn't do. It's looking like it might be a little warmer than I like it to be but a lot can change in a week. If you have been following my training for this marathon each week, thanks and I hope whatever training you are doing, this has helped you in some way.
Have a great day and....Keep Running!!!!
