I struggled with this one. Ankle started to hurt about 4 miles in, so I turned back to the house. I had to run walk the last few miles. Bummer.

Hopefully next week will be better.

See you Monday

I just tried to do my best but I struggled. My fitness just isnt there. I will keep trying but I'm thinking that I will have to move the Marathon back to nest year... Missing the training waiting for my Ankle to heal up just seemed to really set me back. My average pac ewas way slow at 9:39 with a total time of 1:47:22.

See you Monday

I felt pretty good on this one. It was good to have a long run like this where I felt stronger and stronger as the run went on. I'll have a good strong week next week and the do a little taper the week of the race and then see what happens. I had 6 MP miles and my average pace for the long run was 8:57 with a total time of 2:24:19. If I could have had flat to a slight down hill at the end I feel like I could have keep going. Good feeling.

See you Monday.

Last long run. Not sure what to think about the race next week. But I'll just do my best and grind through it. My average pace was 9:05 with a total time of  1:59:08, I hope I can gold that pace the whole way next week but that might be asking for to much.

See you Monday.
