Saturday: 7.5 Mile run and strength
Sunday: 13 Miles (Yes, I did a 10 Mile race but “quit” and headed back to run with a friend)
Saturday Morning Run: Beautiful!

Week 15 and I am back at the peak of marathon training! I love this week, yes I am crazy! Bring it on…

Monday: Morning run, 7.5 miles 1:00:02 with a new running friend and afternoon strength with trainer

  1. My week was alright. I am getting closer to my big race. Just about 12 days, YIKES! Feeling pretty anxious about it. But I know I can get through anything. Just got to put my mind to it. =)

  3. I finally had solid week of training last week. August was stupid busy so I felt like my training took a back seat. My goal race is a mere 4 weeks away so I am hitting my peak miles right now. Bring it on! :)

  4. So close to my first marathon--Mount Desert Island Marathon! Next week is my 20-miler then it's taper time! Training hasn't been stellar, but I've learned a lot in the past few months :)

    1. Learning is a huge piece of marathon training. Good luck with the big weeks ahead.
