I see my path,
but I don’t know where it leads.
Not knowing where I’m going
is what inspires me to travel it.

Atlantic City Marathon training is flying by! Today started week 5, which normally wouldn’t seem very far into training except that I am following a 12 week plan. Just 7 weeks to go! I’m slowly bringing up the miles. I hope to get back to 50 this week, which is going to be tough since I’m going away for Labor Day. This week I have speedwork planned and a mid-week long run before we leave.
Here is how week 4 looked.
Week 4: 40 miles
Monday: 6.25 miles
Tuesday: 7 miles + Push ups & Dips
Wednesday: 5.25 miles
Thursday: 6.5 miles + Weights & Abs
Saturday: 15 miles
Yesterday’s 15 miles were painful…much harder than last week’s 20 miler. I even laid down for a few when I got home. I think I fell asleep for 10 minutes. I made sure to take Magnesium before I went to bed and woke up this morning feeling great.
This week is my last of summer vacation before going back to work. This summer went so quickly! I guess a wedding and a honeymoon will do that! I will have more wedding posts for you this week.
