Week 10 of Marathon Training

Tuesday, October 23, 2012

Had a great week last week! Did a challenging Interval Run, a Tempo run and my longest run of the season so far at 15 miles. I had a really busy schedule last week so when I did my Tempo run, the only time I could do it outside was around 1pm and it was close to 90 degrees. I really didn't think I would finish, was really to call it quits after 5 miles, but I stuck it out and finished the 7 miles. On Saturday I did my 15 and really enjoyed it. Many runners enjoy running with a partner or group, but I actually prefer to run solo. I love listening to my Bible on my Ipod, it's so relaxing and makes the time go by quickly. I look forward to running and listening to Yahweh!

On Sunday, I'll run a Half Marathon race, plus some. My schedule calls for 17 miles, so I figure, why not run 13.1 in a race? I plan to get there early to get most of my miles done before the race so I can be finished when I finish the race. We'll see. The race is almost an hour from me, so I'd need to be out of the house by 5am. I'm up with hubby at 4:30 to make his breakfast and lunch so it shouldn't be a problem.

Enjoying it all, and especially now loving the cooler weather!
