Hail my running brothers and sisters! For those who've been following this blog, clearly my blogging is starting to follow my blogging, i.e. nonexistent. However this week, I started my marathon training, and though I did get in the miles, they were less than stellar. Due to the heat, I've tweaked my outside runs (read here...less miles, slower times) to allow myself some recovery. I've also thrown in the towel and have started doing longer runs on the dreadmill. For those runs, I've upped the speed and mileage to compensate for the fact that I can cheat while I hamster. For last week, I ran 31.52 miles at an average pace of 8:11/mi. I did 1.7 miles of walking for additional cardio/cooldown and 2 hours of golf. My weight fell in around 164.5. On the plus side, I've been playing the best golf I've played in ages! Back to the ground pounding next week. Later kids!
