FRIDAY AND SATURDAY: REST
Beautiful weather but I need to rest for a long run of 22 on Sunday. I think I am going to run on the canal again but I'm not positive.

RUN: 2 MILES-NO TIME
I hate to say it but it was another good run. Felt good and strong. Beautiful sunset. My theme was the song "White Winged Dove" by Stevie Nicks. Dakota and I really cruised along tonight.
Looking ahead to the weekend- Sunday is a 5 1/2 hour run. Need to start the prep. Should be good weather then only a 6 hour run before the marathon.

RUN: 2 MILES/ 6:2 TREES
Another good run. Dakota loves doing the tree interval but there was lots of goose poop on the sidewalk so it added another perspective to the intervals. The temp was about 70 and it felt like a good workout- I could have went farther but with a long run this weekend ,I didn't want to overdo it.
I'm focusing now on the half that is in 2 weeks in Ohio. At this point in the training I know how critical it is to stay healthy and get to the starting line.

What a beautiful sunset! Dakota and I went out and ran a awesome 3 miles. We both clicked well and I felt great. I guess that rest day paid off. The temp was 65 and a nice breeze. This was absolutely one of those nights that you remember why you run and love it!

WALK: 45 MIN
Tonight was the perfect evening to run but it was supposed to be a rest day. I got dressed to go run. Dakota and I headed out the door to run 2. After about 1 block, I realized why it should be a rest day after a long run. My legs felt like weights and were tired. I started walking and did a 45 min. brisk walk. It's not always what you plan to do when you walk out that door. Listen to your body.

RUN : 2 AND 1/2 HOURS -5:1 - 11 MILES: AVE. PACE 13:40
What a beautiful morning. Only 65 and sun. The first 2-3 miles I spent working on my GPS and watch finally got it to work. Then the next 3 miles I missed my interval times beeping and trying to figure out why my time and intervals were different. Aha my interval was set to 5:0. after all that distraction -I couldn't believe how far I'd gone.(6 miles) The last 5 went without problem and I felt great.
It was nice having the shorter run this weekend. I am training to figure my final training plans for the marathon 6 weeks to go!!!
