Log for September 19 – 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 – I decided not to run early this AM since I got up at 4am yesterday morning to run 22-miles. My schedule called for 4 easy miles so I decided to go out for a “barefoot” run in my Saucony Hattoris after the kids were in bed. Funny thing is….my legs do not feel sore at all after my 22-miler yesterday. This feels kind of surreal. Even my chronic aches and pains were not bothering me tonight.
Since my legs felt so good, I ran a bit faster than my normal “barefoot” run with miles of 8:45, 8:14, 8:02 & 8:37. One thing about tonight was that even with temps below 70, the humidity was crazy. I was dripping wet after only 4 miles.
- Cross Training – Tonight Olivia and I did P90X: Ab-Ripper X immediately after my run.
