Time to Get Serious

I don't know how many times I'm going to post about my marathon training failures, but I'm REALLY hoping I can get my life together and get back on target this week! (FOR REAL!)

I ran twice last week, but no long run (go figure).

 Nothing to write home about, but at least I did something right?

For some reason 15 miles has been a huge mental block for me. I've hit the half way point and am happy with my half marathon time, but now it's time to get serious and train like I'm running a full and not a half.

This week my goal is to run a total of 22 miles. Three and four miles on Tuesday and Thursday, then 15 miles this weekend. It WILL happen. I have exactly 2 months before the Disney Marathon which is only 8 more long runs! I now have to play catch up and increase my runs by 2 miles every weekend. That will put me at 26 miles on Dec 22 and then two weeks to taper back before the race.

  1. girl at least you are running!! that's better than I can say. and thanks so much for linking up!

  2. great job on the running at least you're doing it and congrats to the winner of your giveaway

  3. You can do it! 15 is a big block, but once you get through it you really feel like you can really do this. Are you really going to run up to 26 miles? My plan only calls for me to go to 20, but I think I may try to hit a 22 miler in there.
