I have missed you my blogging world. With the delightful turn of the weather a few weeks ago, there was also a corresponding severe uptick in my work load at the University. I think the last day off I had was when Lindsey was here a couple of weeks ago. Not fun. I have only sporadically been able to check on all your blogs.
I have been barely keeping up with my runs too. Despite the stress and just being generally tired, I have been having some really good runs. I can run consistently at about a 7:30 to 7:40 pace. If I can sustain that pace, I would PR at Lincoln on Sunday.
I really can not believe that the marathon is closing in so fast. After this marathon I am going to take a breather from marathon training for a couple of months. I will continue to run on a regular basis but instead of hauling my butt on long runs I am going to go on much longer cycling ride. I like following schedules but I am not sure what I should do when I am not training for something specific. My next marathon wont be until October. Any suggestions on a running plan 30ish miles a week?
Well the weather is looking good for the marathon on Sunday. Right now the weather is forecasted to be a high of 67 and 8 mph winds. Kind of sounds super nice. We will see if it stays that way.
I will be back with a marathon wrap up and here is a great song/video that sums up my feelings of Nashville.
