Running and weather update
I honestly didn’t want to run, but after reading a few chapters of Hal Higdon’s Marathon book I got the itch. The final straw was when we were sitting around watching videos of Summer about a year ago and I could hear my heavy breathing. That did it. Wife and daughter took a nap, so I laced up.
I changed my training schedule for the Youngstown Marathon. I’m sticking with the unaltered, 18 week, Novice 1 plan and doing a 5 mile warm-up before my Half during week 13, 18 mile, long run. I don’t want to tweak with the tapers. So still 2 more weeks til my marathon training starts, but loving the fact that I will hit the ground running. Literally.
