with 2 weeks to go for Newry I am paying attention to how my body is reacting to this new experience of 2 maras in a month. I am very tired and I don't know if that's because I haven't stopped since padova or because I am taking those kind of medication that makes you feel kinda sluggish....it might be a bit of both...
when I go out for a run, though, I feel very good and my legs are fine. I went out yesterday and did 7.69 miles in 1:10 (9:06 min/mile). I was very pleased 'cause I managed to start slow and finish faster. I am trying to learn how to control my pace so that I can finish stronger. This is the graph of yesterday's run (in kilometres)
Not only do I feel tired. I am also starving all the time. I am trying to do some damage control but I am not very successful :-( If I keep eating like this, I'll do the marathon rolling instead of running!
I have decided to postpone the interval training to tomorrow. I'll have enough time to recover for my long run (18miles) on monday.
today SHADES from RW and Fetchie has started her 10 marathons in 10 days. GOOD LUCK to her...she's insane but I love her!
