51 days until my next marathon
September = 200 miles
I don’t know why I have been waiting to post my September miles.
But better late than never.
I completed the Rock N Roll Half Marathon in September. The race involved a taper week before the race and a recovery week after which brought my weekly miles down for those weeks. Also, in hindsight, I did not give myself enough recovery time after the Rock N Roll. I have run stiff since.
When I run stiff, I run angry, ugly miles. I have not been able to do much with speed workouts.
As of October 1st I have 51 days until my next marathon. The workouts I focus on for the marathon are the long runs. To get my body used to enduring the demands I will be asking of it on marathon day.
Here they are, the miles I logged for September. Closer inspection (and better adding) I ran 200 miles
