I'm finally over my cold/flu/whateveritwas enough to get back out there. I missed 4 scheduled runs, 3 weekday 3-4 milers and a recovery long run 6-8 miles. It sucked missing those for training but it was a recovery week so I guess that was the positive of it.
Anywho, I went out after lunch today to the lake by my office and got in 4 laps (3.08 miles). Starting off slow as I wasn't sure how it would go, I quickly sped up, avoided all the Canadian Geese poop, and finished at a 10:16 pace while doing 1:45/1 run/walk. I'll take that as a win!
On the flip side, I didn't make it to the gym yesterday. Works been hectic this week as I'm working on a presentation I'll be giving the day before and day after my marathon. There was just no time to pull away yesterday.
This weekend I've got the big 18 scheduled for my Sunday long run. Daunting? yes Doable? yes. Cooperative Weather? I hope so!!
