This weekend an 18er was scheduled. I met up with Halley - who ran with me 2 weeks ago when I did 16. She did her first half marathon in September (PDR) and the most she ran so far was on Saturday - 15 miles. She is fast, she had a 1:45 at her first 1/2 - she ran XC in high school but is just getting into the racing scene. We did out and backs at Valley Forge on Saturday - it was humid and drizzly and I wasn't having a good day with some stomach issues, but we finished 15 miles. Several hours later I dragged myself on the treadmill to do 3 miles. I know it doesn't count the same as doing 18 straight, but at this point, I don't care that much - I'm doing maintenance miles to FINISH the marathon:)
I was happy it was done on Saturday and I could sleep on Sunday!
I'm actually looking forward to the marathon, but the training is not my highlight right now!
This week coming up is the 20. I think the weather will be cooler and I'll be happy to be done!
Cross training - Lifting
Last week I didn't lift at all but I swim 3 days a week. Do you cross train while marathon training? What about lifting? I can't fit it all in!
