Marathon Training Day 2: An easy 3 miles to start the day!

Marathon Training Day 2: An easy 3 miles to start the day!

"Right before you head out running, it can be hard to remember exactly why you’re doing it. You often have to override a nagging sense of futility, lacing up your shoes, telling yourslef that no matter how unlikely it seems right now, after you finish you will be glad you went. It’s only afterward that it makes sense, although even then it’s hard to rationalize why. You just feel right. After a run, you feel at one with the world, as though some unspecified, innate need has been fulfilled."

Marathon training has officially begun! From here on out every workout has a specific purpose and I have no life.

On the schedule this morning: 4 mile tempo run! I felt strong and fast, not a bad way to start off. I’m excited and a little nervous for these next 14 weeks, but mostly excited. 

Read more about my training on the blog, new post went up last night: Marathon Training Starts Now.

Not officially in marathon training mode yet, but this weekend and next are for ramping up my long run miles before I officially start my training plan on the 28th! This workout felt great at a nice easy pace and the cool weather here in NYC today made it even more comfortable. Yay!
