12/14/13 – 9 miles
My 16 mile run turned into a NINE mile run. Today seemed like Friday the 13th to me. It turns out the exercises I’ve been doing at the gym for my quads were a bad idea. After the first mile today, my quads were killing me. Plus I didn’t feel as if I had my cardio with me at all. So I settled on nine miles & called it a day. The whole thing was a disaster. At this point, I’m getting discouraged. The marathon is five weeks away, and it already feels like I’ve been training forever. At least I won’t be running again until Tuesday. 38 days until the marathon.
