Log for July 27 – 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.
- 6.25-Mile Moderate Run – Ran through Belle Meade with Paxton this morning. Don’t know if it was the later start time, being tired from yesterday, or something else, but I really felt the humidity today. Overall though it was a good run. Most of our miles were between 8:00 and 8:20 pace (8:15 avg). Pretty pleased with the effort considering how hard Nathan and I pushed it on Tuesday. Paxton was a little stronger than me today, but I was mostly able to keep up with him (until the last couple of miles). Looking forward to sleeping in a little later tomorrow, and then a hot and humid track workout tomorrow at 6pm.
- Cross Training – Tonight was Insanity: Cardio Recovery
On another note, it was pretty cool to hear today that Ryan Hall will be running Chicago as well. Hope I finally get the chance to meet him at the expo, and hope he does really well.
