My legs are SO. SORE. It hurt to walk yesterday. I still walk painfully today, though I feel a little better than yesterday. Not sure if I'll be running today. I'm a little surprised it took so much out of me, but I hear downhill running is hard on your muscles.
My uncles are doing the St. George marathon and invited me to run it with them. I've decided to sign up :)
Any marathon training tips would be appreciated!
I think the highest I'll go is 70 miles a week and 21-22 miles as my longest run leading up to the marathon. I plan to start training with one speed/tempo workout a week and one long run. I plan to start tapering 3 weeks before the marathon as per a quick google search of how to taper for a marathon. I put my goal as 3:55 because I have no idea how fast I can run a marathon- this will be my first one.
I ended up doing a small loop today. Once I got started it wasn't that bad, but I was running really slow. 9:30 average.
