5 miles tempo
*2 miles at marathon pace: 8:13 and 8:10. Way too fast…I blame it on the taper crazies!
Labor Day weekend was wonderful. I rested, got some stuff knocked off the ol’ to-do list, BBQ’d, and slept. I slept like a champ…9+ hours each night. More time spent sleeping = less time for the taper crazies to strike.
And the taper crazies made me order this for Hawk’s Halloween costume. Sorry, buddy.
TUE: 6 miles speed (my last speed work of this training cycle!)
WED: 5 miles easy
THU: 6 miles easy
FRI: 10 miles long
SUN: 6 miles tempo (4 miles at MP)
A total of 33 miles for the week and 229 miles for the month of August! That’s a new mileage PR for me! Damn, I should have ran an extra mile to make it an even 230.
So what’s left? Two more easy runs…probably 4 miles on Thursday and 3 miles on Friday and lots of marathon prep. You know…lists, weather checking, and repeating of positive mantras!

Woohoo you beat me for August miles!! 🙂
Hawk is going to be the best dressed dog for Halloween, paws down.
ahh taper madness! You must be so excited. Also, I expect many, many pictures of Hawk in the outfit. I love it. There’s always a doggy Halloween contest at a park in NYC by my apartment and it is the best thing ever in life.
Oh – I am the WORST at doing my “XX pace” tempo way to fast when I’m rested and tapered!
OMG – THAT COSTUME IS AMAZING!!!!!
Alli @ alli learns life says
that costume is hysterical. love it.
I am so freaking excited for you. I was thinking, “hmmm… can i come and cheer her this weekend?” If I didn’t have a 2-month baby, I’d totally hop into my car and come with neon signs! I’ll have to be there in spirit.
Ahh, thanks. You are too sweet!
OMG that costume is so CUTE! Just found your blog though some others and wanted to wish you luck in Lehigh Valley!!! I have a couple of friends who are hoping to BQ there too!
