Marathon Training Week 17 & a new half PR!

This week in training started off with my legs feeling super fatigued from the 23 miler on Saturday. I struggled a lot through Tuesday and Wednesday. Nevertheless,Saturday morning my half marathon rolled around,and I PR’ed!  At the beginning of the year I laid out a few goals for myself and one was to hit an under 2 hour half marathon. At that time, I was only at a 2:13. This year,race by race I seemed to shave time off of this.  Saturday, I not only made this goal,I ended up with a 1:55:00!!  Super excited to see training paying off!  Hopefully my marathon will result in a great race as well!

Monday: Rest Day.

Tuesday: 5 miles. Seemed super difficult.

Wednesday: 8 miles. Today was one of my first days I wondered how I ever ran 23 miles. 8 miles seemed like a super long time today.

Thursday: 3 miles. Legs finally were starting to feel back to normal

Friday: Rest Day.

Saturday: Mill Race Half Marathon in Columbus,IN 13.1 miles never felt so good!
