Sunday of week 3 brings the first 10 miler of the program. The Fargo Marathon is just 15 weeks away now. These 3 weeks have flown by. Each run seems to take little or no time. Why does this feel so easy?
10 miles this afternoon will put the total miles for the week at 38. As the numbers and overall confidence goes the program is going famously. The only thing that would make everything perfect would for a few warmer days and better conditions to complete the speed and marathon pace sessions. Mileage and overall health (check). Speed (TBD).
10 pounds of winter clothes. 10 pounds left to lose before the marathon. With those extra numbers being carried on each run, I feel like the pace will come as I progress through the program. February and March should be warm enough to see an accurate pace on those speed workouts.
The speed may be stuck at an 8 right now, but the attitude is at a 10. Perfect.
