Another week of training for the Disney Marathon coming up on January 13, 2013. My training log for T Minus 18 weeks (Sept 5-11):
Miles ran: 16 (8mi, 3mi, 5mi)
Miles scheduled: 20
Cross training: Pilates x 2
My weight: X-3 (3 lbs lost overall since training began)
Running song o’ the week: Radioactive by Imagine Dragons. Seriously, this makes it into my top 5 running songs. Ever. A great push-through-the-pain anthem. “I wipe my brow and sweat my rust…. I'm waking up - I feel it in my bones.... Welcome to the new age.”
Audiobook: Finished The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. Appreciated it so much I ordered the book so I could read it. Moved on now to Eat and Run: My Unlikely Journey to Marathon Greatness by Scott Jurek. I’m only one chapter in and I’m already loving this book in terms of its ability to motivate. Really, it’s hard not to push yourself in a five mile run when listening to someone talking about how they found strength at mile 60 of the Badwater Ultra in Death Valley.
