Training Totals 5.9.2010

RECAP: 48 miles is a lot of running. Its Tuesday and I am still exhausted. But now its taper time and man am I looking forward to it.

Saturday’s long run started off great, for the first fifteen miles or so, I felt strong and fast. I Rahm Emanuel, I kept a good pace and I was getting a tan. But miles 18-22, wow those sucked. I had to walk a lot in the last two miles, but psychologically, it was very helpful to get in that last long run. Now, I’ll just chill, do a long run of twelve miles this coming weekend and try to watch what I eat to be below 180 by marathon day.
