Mile marker 10

Well I have reached mile marker 10 in my marathon training. Honestly I never thought I could run 10 miles. But I did this morning. Yes my knees are stiff and I have strange tan lines from my watch and socks but it has proven to be worth it. I accomplished a goal today and that makes me proud. Here is a rundown of my training progress.

I run for 30 minutes 3 days a week and then do my long runs on Fridays. Today was 10 miles and I ran it in 2 hours. Im not trying to run for speed so time isnt how I gage my success but I know that you must have at least a 16-minute mile pace to be in a marathon so I have been making sure to fall below that. So today I maintained about a 12-minute mile pace.

Now Im going to go lay down and finish drinking my Propel.

Watch out I come!!
