I’m not so crazy about running everyday, but it’s doing what I wanted it to do. On most days, I feel a lot stronger during my runs. And on the days I don’t feel stronger, I feel the same tired I felt during previous marathon training. I’m taking both of those as a sign I’m doing things right.
The daily runs have become automatic. I get up, I put on running clothes and I know that I WILL RUN, even if it just for short distances. There are several days a week I’m only running 1.5 or 2-miles and that is usually an attempt at some speed-work, 400s with some walking in between.
As far as the long slow Sunday runs go, I’m about 3-miles behind schedule on New York marathon training. I think I can get back on track this weekend. On Saturday I’m running the Tour de Fleurs 20k, but 15-miles is on my schedule so I might run a few miles before, we’ll see how I feel on Saturday.
