Log for August 7 (MY BIRTHDAY!!) – 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.
- Rest Day – Today was my scheduled rest day from both running and cross-training, and it also happens to be my 37th birthday. Amazing how much better I feel at 37, than I did at 27. Overall, this has been a really good week for running. Just over 51 miles completed, and just under 3 hours of cross training activities. Before this training season started, I decided to reduce the number of hours spent cross training, and add that time to running. So far I’m really pleased with this decision, and plan to continue with this through Chicago.
