Marathon Training: Week 7

Another week of marathon training is in the books.  It is hard to believe that in less than 11 weeks I am going to be toeing the line, once again, at a marathon.  Still in my home state, and this time completely in my home state (the Flying Pig had several miles in Kentucky).  I am getting very excited already.  I am nervous too, because I am not sure that I am going to hit the sub-4 goal that I want, but I know that I am going to do great and feel great, right?

Here is the week of workouts:
This is my highest mileage week since the last week in May (when J and I were in Chicago and I did 10 on Friday with 4 on Sunday with my uncle) and the second highest week since the Flying Pig marathon.  I truely did not feel like I overdid anything this week, although my legs are tired now!

This weekend we have a 12-13 mile long run.  I will (AGAIN) be running it in Toledo.  Wildwood, here I come!  I am very seriously considering stopping at a gas station on my way home for a bag of ice and trying out the whole ice bath thing.  It really makes me nervous, but at the same time, I know that it will be a good idea and will help my legs to recover much faster!

Have a great week of training, everyone!


  1. Good luck with increasing mileage again - you'll be great! I'm still jealous you are running Columbus, just not a good time for my next full.
