16 Days To Go

With 16 days, 10 hours, 32 minutes to go before the marathon, I’ve reached a point where I feel like I’m in fairly good shape – for a half marathon.  On my long runs I’ve typically been feeling strong through 10, then things start to wear down around 12-13, then fatigue hits hard in the mid-teens.  Most training programs, including the one that I’ve been (loosely) following, provide for getting at least one 20-miler in before the big day.  My longest has been 16.  With only 2 training weeks left, there’s not enough recovery time left to get one in now.  Oh well.  At least I won’t have to worry about being overtrained.       

One foot in front of the other….

    how many days now?

    a short run, a hot shower, a nap, some seafood, and you.
    can’t think of a better time

    9 days, 9 hours, 42 minutes.

    Between the two of us, we’re running 39.3 miles. I’m not sure I’d call that a short run. But it all sounds good!
