MCM Training Week 13

Training for: Marine Corps Marathon – October 25, 2015 in Washington, D.C

Method: Run Less, Run Faster Novice Marathon Training

Goal: a) under 5:00 b) 4:45:00 – I truly just want to FINISH. This will be my first marathon and probably last (for the foreseeable future anyway).

19 days until Marine Corps Marathon!

This will be a quick post… I can’t even do a day by day because there is just nothing to post. The week got away from me. I did however run 20 miles yesterday. It went as well as my first ever 20 miler could go. I ran 7 miles and then jumped right into the Smuttynose Half Marathon in Hampton Beach, NH. I’m hoping to have the recap ready for tomorrow’s link up.

Sunday: plan: 20 miles at MP+30 (11:23/mi) actual: 20.23 in 4:02:54 12:01/mi

I will say that I’m going to embrace this taper period. Training has taken a toll on me; mentally, physically, emotionally. This week I plan to get my runs in and focus on some core work. I will start with some yoga tonight to stretch out after that long run. Luckily I woke up, this morning, feeling much better then I had when I went to bed last night!!

Next Sunday I’ll be running the B.A.A Half marathon in Boston. My training calls for 13 miles at MP which would be a PR for me. I’m going to go out and give it my all and see what I can do!

I’m raising money for Girls On The Run, my goal is $1500 and I’m 67% there! If you are interested in helping me reach my goal please donate here, thank you!

  1. GL on your half. I have one too. GOTR is a great program. I was a running buddy last spring.

    I’ve never run a marathon and if I do, it’ll only be ONE.
