Hansons Marathon Method - Review in Progress - Day 57, 58 and 59 of 123
I was out of town for the weekend, so I'm a little bit behind here. Let's get caught up.
-7 miles easy
-8 miles easy
Well, sort of. We were camping over the weekend, so my eight miles easy wasn't really that easy. It had some ups and downs.
A lot of climbing for 8 miles. No way was I going to do the 15 mile Sunday run on that track.
-15 miles at 8:30 pace
But only after a 6 hour car drive home. The ol' legs were not too happy about that, I can assure you. I basically drove six hours, jumped out of the car and took off on a 2+ hour run, so I could finish the run before dark. Oof.
It went OK for about 10 miles, then the weekend caught up with me and I ran the last five miles like I had a mini fridge on my back (I wish I had...I could have grabbed a couple cold ones to make the time go by faster).
It wasn't pretty, but I got it done. It's just not easy to get in 18 straight weeks of training without life intruding once in a while.
Go buy the book:
