First Tempo Week, Two Weeks To Go!

I Finished my first Tempo Week and can’t believe I only have two weeks until my Marathon. Monday was a nice 5 mile run but my legs were still a bit stiff from the 20 miles the Saturday before and my knees were too.

24 September 13 Run


I was not feeling well on Wednesday so I skipped running which was probably for the best anyway. Thursday I was real busy so I skipped running that day too.  I felt good for my 12 miles today though. I actually slept in and started around 11:00.  Everything felt pretty good. I have a little soreness on my right side but it’s hard to isolate it. It could be ITB, sciatic, or glute. Maybe all three. My knees felt really good until about mile 8 and then started to get sore. I had to walk a bit at mile 11. I know I didn’t hydrate enough so that may be part of the problem. I have some Ideas that might help, I’ll let you know haw it goes.

  1. Keep up the good work! I can’t help compare all my aches and pains to how easy it was to run when I was 20 LOL!

  2. To reduce the stiffness from your long run Saturday to your easy run on Monday, a short 20 minute super super easy run would help a lot

    Hope the body feels better soon. Keep up the hard work, not long before the marathon now!

What do you think about that?
