In it for the long haul

Week 2 of 22 marathon training is in the bag.  Well, the miles are tracked on the shoes and I am feeling better.  I made sure to get up at the crack of dawn, literally we are watching the sun rise at the park, to complete my runs.

So, here’s a quick recap of week 1 and week 2

Week 1:
Tuesday- 3 miles
Thursday- 3 miles
Saturday- 4 mile race 8:34/mi. pace
Sunday- should have ran 2 miles but my life got in the way

Week 1 total- 10 miles

Week 2:
Tuesday- 3 miles
Thursday- 2 mile walk (I was slacking and didn’t quite feel like running.  hailey decided 4am was a good time to wake up and stay up until it was almost time to head to the park.
Saturday- 4 miles (even on the weekends I get up at the crack of dawn to complete my miles. Best to get the miles in before the baby wakes for the day)
Sunday- 3 mile

Week 2 total- 12 miles

So, if we combine week one and week 2, I have almost completed a marathon….oh this doesn’t count?  I am hopeful.  However, I’m starting to run and breathe at the same time again.  At the beginning of this, I was huffing and puffing my way through 3 miles.  I know that my strength and endurance will continue to improve as the training progresses.

If you are interested in following the long 22 week training program you can find the link here in a previous post. I will be incorporating some of the training from this program as the weeks continue. I will also be adding in a CT day on Wednesday starting at week 18.

Hope you continue to enjoy this journey with me and that you feel inspired to complete your own personal challenge.  This is definitely going to be an interesting experience!
