Log for August 3 – 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-Mile Recovery Run – After hard runs and cross training on Monday and Tuesday, it was good to run easy this morning with Paxton and Nathan. We ran through the Bellevue community and even worked in a lap around the vacant Bellevue Center Mall. The temps were mild when we started, but quickly heated up as we approached 7am. My legs were really sore when we started, but felt much better as we finished. I told Paxton that feeling better when you finish than when you started has got to be the sign of a perfect recovery run.
- Cross Training – Tonight was a P90X double-header: Shoulders & Arms + Ab-Ripper X. Some of my favorite words in the English language are “You’ve just completed Ab-Ripper X boys and girls” by Tony Horton. That is a great workout, but it is tough. Even after doing it for over a year, it still kicks my tail every time.
