Log for August 24 – 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.
- 6.6-Mile Recovery Run – This morning, Paxton and I did our normal “Nature Center” loop backwards as a recovery run. My legs were feeling pretty beat up, but we kept the pace very relaxed. Slowly as the run progressed my legs started feeling better and better, and by the end we picked up the pace just slightly. As I always say, you know it was a good recovery run when your legs feel better at the end, than at the beginning. Mission Accomplished today.
- Cross Training – Because my legs have been feeling really beat-up and tired the last couple of days I decided to take the night off from cross training, and focus on rest. Gotta be ready for track tomorrow night, and a tough marathon workout on Saturday.
