Another week is in the books as far as hammering through runs. We do not have too much longer to go before we get to the Columbus Marathon. I have been working really hard to nail all of my runs, hit my required paces, and tack on the mileage as required. Things have been feeling pretty good, and while I am nervous, I know that I am putting in the work.
So let's look at Week 13, shall we?
Monday: 3.5 mile walk
Tuesday: 7.5 miles, speedwork. 1 mile @ 7:15, 2x800m @ 7:03, 1 mile @ 7:15
Wednesday: 7 miles, easy pace, 8:32 average
Thursday: 10.2 miles
Friday: 3.25 mile walk
Saturday: 18 mile run with a half mile cooldown walk. (8:37 average for the run)
Total: 4 runs, 2 cross training (walking) for a total of 49.95 miles (D'OH!) 189.71 miles for the month of August. This MIGHT be my highest month of all time. I think I ran around 185 in September of 2012. I think.
Less than 7 weeks until GO TIME!
