Marathon training has been going pretty well. I'm surprised how motivated I've been considering I haven't even registered for the race yet, and it's in 3 weeks =) Can you say procrastination?? I've been averaging about 30-35 miles a week now and I'm feeling really good. My right knee has been giving me a few problems lately, but I've been icing it everyday and my last few runs it's felt fine. I'm hoping it doesn't cause me any problems on race day.
Yesterday I did my last long training run of 20 miles. I ran along Wasach Blvd which is pretty hilly and ran against a strong headwind for about half of my run. It took me about 3 hours and 7 minutes which I'm pretty happy about considering my route and the heat. I'm looking forward to running my first marathon, although I am a little nervous and anxious about it. I have a few other friends running it as well so I'm looking forward to running it with them and having some much needed support. And who knows, maybe I'll catch the marathon bug and want to run 100s of them =)
