As I embark on my journey for NYC Marathon greatness (or at least a post-baby sub 4:00 finish), I’m going to do a training update each week on the blog in an effort to keep myself motivated and honest. Apologies in advance if you hate all things running; feel free to skip all posts going forward that start with “NYC 26.2”. And FYI for those of you who really hate running that much: 26.2 is the standard distance for a marathon…and you also might enjoy reading this.
Week 1 started off strong (as mentioned here), but fizzled as the week went on. To be expected during a holiday week with a 100 degree heat wave, I guess. I got in 18 miles total for the week (all in the new sneaks, for cumulative total of 35 in the new guys) which was 1 mile shy of Hal’s weekly plan of 19. I felt good on all runs and I didn’t skip days, just re-worked the order and mileage. So that’s some good news. Week 2 steps it up a bit so I’m looking forward to that challenge (and the break in the heat wave).
