I'm only 6 weeks out from my marathon and I haven't done longer than a 10 mile run. Yikes. 

I changed that today doing a 14 mile run with over 1000 ft climb over 8.5 miles then descending that same amount over 5.5 miles for my first 14 mile run in a long time. We are having unusually hot weather still for October. It was 85 when I left the house a little before 6 am and 93 when I finished. I sure hope it cools down soon.

6 miles at recovery effort followed by some core and lower body work.

I'll do some pilates tonight while I watch MNF

It was only 75 degrees this morning!! First day in the 70's this fall.  I celebrated with a tempo run.

4 miles warm up, uphill pretty slow, then turned around and ran back down 4 miles at average pace of 7:05.  It's so sad that my downhill tempo pace isn't even what my mp pace used to be.  Such is life in your 50s.
