Marathon training starts TOMORROW.
Well, officially it starts today, but today’s my rest day, and really, what better way to start a training program than by taking a day off?
Monday: sit on the couch and scratch myself
Tuesday: 3 @ 12:02
Thursday: 5 mi = Warmup 1; 3 mi @ 10:24; Cooldown 1
Saturday: 8 @ 12:02
This is the training plan I snagged from RW.com (that I will ultimately abandon, most likely 6 weeks or so into the program). I switched some days around.
I’m a little offended Runner’s World thinks I’m only capable of running a 12-minute mile, but truth be told, I’ll probably actually need to run that slow for the 8 miler on Saturday.
That sounds so pathetic.
Good news is, it looks like we might get a (sort of) break from the heat this week.
I guess when it comes down to either 90°F or 85°/thunderstorms, I’ll take thunderstorms.
Hope you people are all having just the best day ever. I really do.
