I’ve neglected my updates over that last month or since my Chicago debacle. Over the past few weeks I’ve focused more on my speed then trying to run as many miles as possible. I wanted to get in more long runs but have only managed 2 since Chicago. I did top 15 miles on Sunday though and felt pretty good after the run.
Overall my body has held up pretty good. Outside of a few aches and pains (left heel and right knee) my legs feel fresh and ready to run.
I have topped 50 miles over each of the last 3 weeks. I may hit 50 again this week but my target is closer to the low 40’s. I would like to get in 2 medium runs, 1 long run and short and easy the rest of the week.
As of right now I feel like I’m ready for a good race in Philly if the weather holds out that is. The lows have been in the 30’s so hopefully it stays that way. Either way I’m looking forward to my last marathon of the year.
2 weeks until Philadelphia
