Good morning, TEAM LIT!
Reg: "Got to say that I sometimes envy you just starting the journey!"
I get that. I really do. I was just thinking about it. H and I always said that we would have two kids and be done, especially since the pregnancy and delivery were so tough on her. Although we are sticking to this, I could easily have another. I mean, the kids, at their ages, are just so much fun and rewarding. Maddie isn't there just yet, but Camden is so much fun. We have such a blast every single day. And I know it'll just get even better when Maddie turns the corner -- probably within 3 months. I would imagine the fun just gets better and better, building more and more each year, until they hit their teens when it starts shifting, if you will, and then gradually diminishing as they become more independent. So yes, that I have at least 13 more years of this does not at all get by me. I absolutely love these young years! It really is getting better and better.
Yoshi: "Did what Thor suggested. 3 miles w/u, 6 miles at MP, 1 mile easy, 3 miles at MP and 2 miles east... This workout covers the two key elements of a marathon training and was perfect for me... But I have to tell you... It wasn't as easy as I would like it to be."
Make sure you rest after this. If you do not rest, you will lose the freshness in your legs. These types of workouts this close to your race are awesome but need to be respected with ample rest. This is precisely why I only listed out 3 workouts per week for you. You can run more, but respect that you need rest after this.
And by the way, GREAT job getting this done.
RonBo: GREAT having you back regularly!
Saturday: 13 mile run with three others in a down pouring rain. We were going to log 3 more miles, but the person who I was keeping company decided she didn't need the extra three, and since I was there only to support her, I was done too. Hilly route.
Sunday: 5 mile run.
Monday: 4.5 mile run. Decent pace. Legs feeling good. Dead legs are going away. This is no longer a question. Still there, but getting better and better.
