I ran really slow today, even slower than normal (8:37 pace). The heat isn't bad, but 80% humidity at 7 pm was rough. Went out 8 easy and ran Alum Creek Trail, over by Easton. Nice to not have bikers every 2 minutes. Usual easy pace is around 8:05-8:10 pace (my other paces are faster). My left knee and right calf ache a little bit, but my left calf and right knee are fine.
Training is coming along ok for the marathon, but October 20 seems so far away. I wish this summer would hurry up and end and August would speed by! We still have 3 weeks to Labor Day. Ugh.
I'm able to handle 50 plus and am hoping to get to 60-65 at peak in Sept. before my soft taper to 40-45, then 25 the week of the 'thon. Letsrun gets a lot of crap but it really is a good resource (no sarcasm).
