11 weeks to go....

well, we have 11 weeks before race day! what is everyone doing??? it has been hot in New Jersey Pennsylvania and Minnesota (don't know about Utah ) these past weeks, but are we presevering? Gotta get those runs in.

I just watched an on-demand show about training for a marathon - not chocked full of info but interesting as they suggested you can train for a full marathon in 10 weeks on three days of running a week. A long run, mile intervals at race pace, and a tempo run. strength training was important too, twice a week. so anyone who is really behind in their training like me, there is still hope!!

I have been feeling very good lately, I actually did a fartlek workout last week (3 min jog, 3 min run for 4 miles) and a negative split 7 miler, I think I actually went under 10 minute miles for one of the miles!! What a change in two weeks! and, sorry Cari, but I have a new training partner - my son! He rides his bike with me, right next to me, and puts out his hand if he hears me breathing too hard or if I say I'm tired. He carries our water/propel bottles. we also use walkie-talkies when he feels like riding ahead. Now, if I can only get him to trades places with me......
