Last Saturday was my longest run ever - 17 miles. I felt awesome the first half.  SO awesome that I was pacing too fast. On my last 2 miles, I was exhausted. My legs were just heavy - not sore, but didn’t want to cooperate. I was frustrated, of course, but I decided to walk the last mile to my car. I made it through! I am happy with that.

After last Saturday’s complete shit show of a run, I knew I had some problem solving to do. I suspected it was my shoes. I am a cheap ass and since my 2 half marathons I wore Asics,  I decided the brightest thing to do was to go to the outlet and get some new ones!

A few weeks ago, I cried tears of frustration while I was running. Every Saturday is my long run for the week in my training plan for the NYC marathon. Last Saturday was 11 miles, and I was having a shitty run. I started out feeling awesome, but somewhere around mile 5 ½, I started feeling pain. Right below my knees my legs ached, and the last three toes on my left foot were cramping so bad they started to feel like they were on fire! “You are not in pain, you are just imagining shit” I told myself.

Ok triathlon athletes (this blog is also for biathlons, marathon, and other races you compete in) at this point you should be well within your conditioning phase. Continue with your squats, lunges, single leg touchdowns and core training. It’s time to add some speed training.

Marathon for Momo number 4! Training was tough in the summer lots of hills in Rhode Island and lots of long runs alone but manageable. I was fortunate to find an awesome running partner about six weeks ago and we paired up very well with her fast pace and my slow pacing. And I was able to do some of my long runs with a Griffin friend in Rhode Island. Feeling strong and confident in my running, on a whim I decided to participate in the reach the beach relay during my training as well, which was a great challenge for me.
