Weeks 5 & 6

So, week 5 wasn't bad, although, my plan was to run 10 miles Saturday and then 16 miles on Sunday.

That didn't happen.

Saturday, I ran a 15K and a .7 mile warm up for a total of 10 miles. So... hooray!!! Even better... I ran the 15k at a 9:49 pace (my goal was sub 10:00 pace for the race). So... double hooray!!

And then Sunday rolled around and I was all psyched to run 16 miles. And then I started running and my legs felt like bricks. Apparently, running 9 miles at 9:49 pace is hard on my legs these days. Sad, but true.

So, at the end of the week, I finished with back-2-back 10 milers. Not ideal, but not terrible.

Week 6 was terrible running-wise. The KoB was out of town for a couple of days, which means, I was on dog duty. I went to the Carrie Underwood concert for work one night, which was fun, but EXHAUSTING, and then we flew to Boston, where I could have ran more. But, didn't.

So, there you have it. I'm tapering. HAHAHAHAH. Ha. Ha.

The good news is, I have no problems with walk/running this marathon as much as I need to. (It's going to be a lot of walking, people). I've got 2 weekends to go before the race. Let's hope, I can put something together this weekend.

I always laugh when I see your posts labeled "dumb training". It can't be that dumb: your pace is faster than you expect! Something is working!
