Marathon Training Update
I'm four weeks away from my first Marathon. After celebrating Cinco de Mayo with a huge plate of Spaghetti (I know spaghetti isn't Mexican but it's good training food) and two bottles of Corona, I woke up 6:30 AM for a 22 mile run. Unless you're training for a Marathon I don't reccomend that you ever go on a 22 mile run, it's really not that enjoyable. I finished in a very solid 2:44, if I can hold that pace for another 4.2 miles (and that's a big IF!) my marathon time would be aproximately 3 Hours 15 minutes and 17 seconds! That would put me only five minutes short of a Boston Marathon Qualifying time. I'll be estactic with a time under 3:30, I think I'll try for Boston next time.
