Since the program alternates between long runs that increase by 2 miles and easy 4 mile runs, I tend to not do as well during the easy weeks. I guess I figure I can do those runs with no problem so it's ok to skip. I always fit in my long weekend run and my Tuesday run, but when it comes to Thursday I get burnt out from the week and I manage to talk myself out of it. I cannot realistically be ready for a marathon by only running 2 days a week. It's just NOT going to cut it. Putting that behind me, here's to next week. Week 11 here I come!
In other news, I have two upcoming races that should help keep me on target. I am running a half marathon on Oct 13th (still need to register to make it real) and the Army 10 Miler on October 21st.
Here are the stats from my two training runs:
I hit the 4 mile mark at 35:40 which is a personal best for me!
Anyone else out there training for something? What keeps you motivated?
