Marathon training: 10 down, 8 to go!

Week 10 is checked off! I’m getting excited, I kinda wish it would hurry up. But then that would be wishing away my favorite time of the year. I am dreaming of Turkey and Dressing already. Oh, and Pumpkin Pie.

This week I made these very yummy egg quiche/muffin things again! They don’t last long in our house. The original recipe is here. I used spinach instead of broccoli and added canadian bacon.

Tuesday’s glorious 4 mile run in perfect temps!

And my longest mid-week run, 8 miles, under a perfect clear sky full of stars!

Then we get to Saturday, 13 miles, 75 degrees, 300% humidity! But still a good pace. Oh and my heart rate monitor strap chaffed me, it’s unpleasant to say the least.

I use body glide but apparently not well enough this morning. This is the first time the HRM strap has done that.

This morning’s run was the hardest but I still had a great pace. I’m hopeful I’ll be able to push myself when I need to in the marathon. Now all I have to do is double what I did today! (YIKES!!)

The long runs are about to get crazy and I have 2 halfs coming up. If I’m going to run 13 miles I might as well get a medal for it!

Did you race this weekend?

Did you workout?

Any big plans?

  5. I did a half marathon this weekend as a training run for the full, it helps to motivate me a bit. Amazing pace on your long run.
