11 days to go and a great workout…

I was actually able to get to the gym today over lunch! Wahooo! It felt so great to be back in the gym, running fast, and feeling tired, sore, and exhilarated all at the same time.  There is no feeling quite like it.

Anyhow, enough celebration.  Even though I haven’t been sticking tightly to the plan for last two or three weeks (work has been difficult), today I stuck with the plan and the plan called for a speed day – it was FUN!  Here are the details:

  • 10 minute warm up
  • 5 x 1K 4:24 pace on 1:45 Rest Interval
  • 10 minute cool down


  1. 4:05.98
  2. 4:14.38
  3. 4:21.55
  4. 4:17.07
  5. 4:09.43

Really, my workout today felt great and gave me a lot of confidence that I will be able to run the Marathon successfully – maybe not as fast as I was shooting for early in the season, but a finish is success in itself.
