St. Louis Marathon Training: Shriver by the River

Week of March 6 to March 12 (Marathon 4 Weeks Ahead)
Goal: 35 miles
Actual: 10 miles (Saturday)

Week of March 13 to March 19 (Marathon 3 Weeks Ahead)
Goal: 40 miles
Actual: 25 miles (5 miles on Wednesday and 20 miles on Saturday)

Another nasty cold derailed my training program. I haven't been able to put up the mileage that I wanted, but I was able to complete a 20-mile run today. I was steady the first 15 miles, but Mile 15-19 were agonizing. With one mile to go, a girl passing me was a gift. My senses were awaken. I chased the bitch and ran the fastest mile this month to the finish line, Lloyd Hall.

It's tapering time!
