Another week closer.

As the days go by I cross off the calender the countdown to marathon running day.  I am getting excited and I feel more than ready.  This week I was able to stay right on schedule EXCEPT the long run.  Throughout all this training, I have had to look ahead and plan.  I knew a month ago it would be very difficult to get this weekend long run and I was right.  Instead I spent time with family.  Saturday I worked at the Eatery until 2, decided on a bike ride because it was 80 degree and very sunny , too warm for a 20 mile run.  Then time at our lake lot to have a hunting feed.  Sunday was spent at an apple orchard/scarecrow/pumpkin patch with family and I saved a few minutes in the evening for a beautiful sunset run.  IT WAS ALL WORTH IT.

I didn’t panic about it too much though.  Remember when I was sick earlier in September and I missed out on about 5 day of training including a longer run.  I bounce back great from this, so I know I will be fine.  I will get in a longer run next weekend, not sure the distance yet I will plan that over the week.  The bottom line is compared to training for my first marathon I feel amazing.
