So late to #MarathonMonday it’s Tuesday already! But not to worry, I’m not hiding because I didn’t complete my weekly training, I actually did awesome! It was just a very busy Monday for me. So I’m writing this Tuesday September 1st, only two months to the marathon! Gosh, I’m freaking out already…
This past week I run 26 miles, which makes me happy since that’s a marathon right there, now I just need to put all those miles together, ha! My long run was 12 miles again, which I completed slowly but steady. It was a little more painful than my first 12 miles, hopefully it was just because of the heat. Can’t wait for fall to get here!
This week I’m supposed to run 34, quite a big jump that I don’t think I will complete. Monday:4 miles Regular Run, Tuesday:7 miles Intervals, Wednesday:Day Off which come out handy since I’m working all day, Thursday:10 miles Pseudo Long Run that is not going to happen since I’m working all day, Friday:Day Off, Saturday:Day Off, Sunday:Race Half Marathon.
Since I’m off Friday and Saturday I may split those 10 miles from Thursday between those two days, or who knows maybe I don’t need to work all day Wednesday and/or Thursday, so I will pack my running gear just in case. What I have learned throughout all this is to be flexible and not get stressed out if I can’t follow the schedule to the dot. As long as I’m trying my best things will work out.
Can’t wait for my long weekend and my Virginia Beach “runcation”, promise to tell you all about it.
