Week 17 Marathon Training

week 17



I am officially one week out from my 2nd marathon.  When you train and plan for something for so long, taking one week or one day at a time, you have to give yourself a pat on the back.  After this morning longish run, my training officially seems to be over, I just need the BIG race.  I feel prepared and ready!

I have even been talking and seriousely considering signing up for another marathon, training would not officially start until late february or early march as the race day is June 18, 2016.  This give me a few months to just run, not for time, speed or diatance but just run.  T0 get caught up in the moment of running and not thinking of every run as a part of training.  Running mindlesly is AWESOME.
