So I'm definitely worse at blogging than I am at running. Oh well ..... bygones.

Training has been going really well for the most part. We're still hovering in the 18-20 miles per week range. Believe it or not, we won't go much above that during the course of our training. Big difference in training for a half marathon and a full. I'm up to 8 miles for the long run. My pace hasn't gotten any quicker. It still takes me about 11 minutes to run a mile, but what matters to me is that I ran it, not that I was the first one done! We actually have a drop back week this Saturday and are only doing 6 miles. Who knew I'd ever say "only 6 miles." Ha! Anyway, I'm pretty excited about the drop back.

My maintenance runs during the week remain at 3 miles 4 days a week. So I'm running 5 days a week right now. Maintenance has been tough this week between new sneakers (ouch) and adjusting to the warmer temperatures. Yesterday it was 85 when I went for my run. Typically I can go three miles without a drink............... not in that heat. I managed it, but man was it difficult and I almost gave up several times. I've got another 3 to get under my belt tonight after work and then I have tomorrow off. Yeah! I love off days. Actually, I feel guilty for most of them, but oh well. Happy running! :)
