Log for August 12 – 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.
- 4-Mile Barefoot Run – Paxton and I ran our normal 4-mile route this AM at a very easy pace after a hard track workout last night. There was a nice break in the temps and humidity which made this an extremely pleasant morning. I broke out my Saucony Hattori’s again after taking a break from the “barefoot” run last week. My big toe is still sore, but it didn’t bother me during the run. Glad this was an extremely easy effort because I’m a little nervous about our workout tomorrow AM. It is going to be 4 X 30 minute intervals at just over goal marathon pace, and I have a feeling it’s gonna be a tough one.
- Cross Training – Tonight I did P90X: X-Stretch. I could tell throughout the day today that my hamstrings were very tight, so I decided to get in some good stretching before the workout tomorrow.
