Last night was a momentous occasion. My Sweetheart spotted my first gray hair!! O well..such is life. Gray hairs are a sign of great wisdom, or stress, or both. Or just flat out aging! Anyway, I won't let it be a downer I'm young at heart.
Today the rains have come. Since the streets are flooded and I'm very sore from yesterdays effort I decided on the treadmill. 6.3 miles in an hour at 1 degree incline. I felt great regardless of the gray hair(s) (I'm sure there are more to come).
I totaled 40 miles this week. As I was tread milling I was thinking about this next weeks training plan and my race strategy for the marathon. My goal is to break the four hour barrier.
Next week I will run 10 on Monday, 3 on Tuesday with some strider's, 8 on Wednesday, 5 on Thursday, rest Friday, Half Marathon race Saturday. This race WILL BE an all out race effort, bookended by two miles making it a long run.
It will be a motivator. The marathon requires a cause. A motivator.
The first Marathoner, Phidippides, had a cause: To declare Victory!!
That's my cause! Victory over the four hour barrier. So the half will be a good test of my sincerity for the cause. I'm thinking I can run a 1:50 half?
I'm still working on a race plan for the Marathon. I will post later on this and hope to get input from you guys. Well it's off to watching hoops action, have a great weekend!
