I am currently training for my second marathon at St. Jude Memphis this December. I just completed Week 13 of Hal Higdon's Novice 2 Marathon Training Plan. I will recap my training and other highlights from my week here in the Weekly Wrap.
Monday, October 26th
Monday was a rest day on my training plan. The students were rambunctious! It was raining in addition to a full moon, Red Ribbon week, and Halloween. I didn't believe my professors when they talked about full moons and changes in barometric pressure affecting students' behavior. I never imagined it would make much difference. I'm in my 7th year of teaching, and now I can tell when it's a full moon without looking outside.
Tuesday, October 27th
I ran 5 miles at an easy pace this morning. It was a tough run mainly because of the 15-25 mph wind gusts. I felt like I would fall right over if I stopped moving. I was thankful that the rain held off.
Wednesday, October 28th
I ran 5 miles at my marathon goal pace. I didn't have a mid-week semi long run on the plan for this week. Woohoo! It never fails, the day I head out the door in my new shoes and no hat, it rains! Tuesday I was prepared and I missed the rain. I got a little wet, but it helped cool me off.
Thursday, October 29th
I ran another 5 miles on Thursday. It was good running weather, no wind, no rain, and temps in the 50's.
Friday, October 30th
Friday was a rest day for running on my training plan. We had a Halloween snack at school. Michael made pumpkin rice crispy treats for my students. They loved them! I loved them, too.
Saturday, October 31st
I ran my 19 mile long run faster than I should have on Saturday morning. I ran based on feel, and I only checked my Garmin at every mile. I felt great, and when I feel great it's hard to force myself to slow down. This run was a real confidence booster after last week's struggle. I just hope I can maintain this pace in a month from now at St. Jude.
Sunday, November 1st
I've had a lazy day. It was cloudy and rainy here. I watched the NYC Marathon. Then, I cleaned house while Michael went grocery shopping.
That's a wrap!
Did you do anything fun for Halloween? Did you watch the NYC Marathon today?
