Sorry for being away – I’ve been pretty busy the last couple of days with work and squad. I had a great 7 mile run on Wednesday with some speed work mixed in, followed by a slow and painful 5 miles yesterday. I think I didn’t refuel properly after the first one. Today was a rest day (literally) as I was post squad duty and only slept about 2-3 hours at the station. So I came home and slept for a few more hours before getting up to go to work. Tomorrow is a 14 mile run that I cannot chicken out on – I don’t care if it takes me three hours, I need the mileage!
While I’m looking forward to the races in a few weeks, I’m ready to get back into marathon training right afterwards. The mentality is so different for me and I’m less likely to flake out.
