Log for July 6th – Training for Bank of America Chicago Marathon on October 9th. Goal for the fall and winter marathon season is to break 3:15 for the first time.
- 5.7 mile trail run – Ran with Paxton on the Candy Cane and Red Trail at Percy Warner Park. I was not nearly as sore one day removed from my fall as I anticipated, and was happy to be back running again so soon. We did most of the run at a fairly easy, but consistent pace. The Red Trail is a pretty hilly track (~800 ft of elevation gain), and Paxton really looked strong this morning. Overall it was a really good, fun run.
- Cross Training – After missing Monday and Tuesday, I was able to do P90X Legs and Back tonight. I was a little concerned about doing pull-ups with the wound on my right hand, but ended up doing 97 total unassisted throughout the workout. This is a new record for me by 2, and I now have my sights set on breaking 100 for the first time soon!! Bring It!!
