It's May and I feel like I've had a nice start in terms of my marathon training. Although I have not been consistently running 4x....I have been able to get in one long run 8-9 miles a week and a few shorter runs of 5 miles. I even got in some mini vibram runs.
I signed up for 2 more NY Road Runner races.... I am a little nervous/wary that the Sept 25 race is only 2 weeks before my marathon. And the Aug 21 is right after my summer vacation (it's so hard to kept up training during vacay). But I figure the best way to up my pace is to race.
I'm really excited for the Women's 10K next month. Last year I ran it 48:54 minutes (avg 7:52/mile). I've been running faster than that for my weekly runs this year. So I'm aiming for 46 minutes or less.
