I’ve been having terrible writer’s block with this entry. Every time I sit down to write something, I can’t think of anything worth posting.

Well, let me just start off by reviewing my running last week:

Monday (Feb 1) – 6 miles in 62 min (10:20 pace)
– rest day
– 6 miles in 55 min + 5 x striders (9:07 pace)
Thursday – 4 miles in just under 36 minutes (8:57 pace)
– rest day
– 8 miles in 71min (8:52 pace)
Sunday – 4 miles in 37 min  (9:11 pace)

Total Mileage: 28 miles in 5 runs

Not a bad week, especially considering I was pretty sick on Monday, so I was pretty slow that day and took some walking breaks. I would have liked to do a long run on Saturday of 10 or 12 miles, but I decided to try running with the local running group for the first time instead.It was really great actually, and I may dedicate an entry to running with a group in the future, but for now I’ll just say that while I did run considerably faster than I am used to running by myself, I didn’t get the mileage in.

I think this week I may run for 40 minutes or so before meeting up with the group and then tack some additional miles on to the end if needed. Or I might just plan on getting my long run in on Sunday instead, I’m really not sure which is the better plan.

I’m concerned because as of yesterday (Monday, Feb 8), I am 12 weeks out from the Wisconsin marathon and my training has been generally pretty so-so up to now. I really need to work harder on getting my long runs done every weekend or I will be suffering on marathon day.  And I still don’t have a marathon training plan! I’ve been making it up as I go along, which I don’t think is a good idea. I should probably spend this morning reading up and deciding what I want to do.  Any thoughts?

    Just another 20-something crazy lady runner here. Freezing my butt off in Wisconsin, while I try to get faster and do my best out there.
