Another good week of training. Training call for 5-5-5 this week. I pulled out roughly 5-6.5-4.5. Not bad. This weekend's long run calls for 19 miles. I'm excited about it but nervous at the same time. I have never run that far before. I have a new route mapped out that should hopefully keep me busy looking around at the new scenery and not on the mileage.
I was reading Trent's blog over at Running from Mediocrity and he just ran his first 20 miler of his training. I like how he mentioned that he felt a post long run buzz the next day after his long run. I felt the same way about my 17 miler this weekend. I honestly felt like I accomplished something great. I'm hoping to feel the same after my long run this weekend as well. What a great feeling that is. Trent is doing his first marathon a week after I do my first marathon. It's been interesting to read about his training. I can really relate to what he is going through right now. Please follow him and wish him well on his training!
I wish you you all good runs this weekend! Please send me some positive vibes as I conquer my first ever 19 miles!
