6 weeks in
I am six weeks into my marathon training and I have been following it very closely. My last 4 or 5 runs have gone very well and I am really starting to feel like I am back. Last week I ran 6, 800 meter splits at an average time of about 3:28 and they felt really good. This week I ran a tempo run on Monday that was only 3.25 miles but my pace was 7:35. Last night I did another temp run that was just over 6 miles and the pace was 7:53. This week my mileage will be up around 18 which is starting to feel like I am actually accomplishing something. I can't wait to get back up over 30 miles a week but I need to make sure I don't push my luck. I have not signed up for the Columbus Marathon but I plan to do so in the next week or two.
