Some random observations:

training for a marathon at this time of year is much harder than during August and September.

I have now run more miles than all of last year (which was a PR for miles) with 5 weeks to go.

I have pretty much stopped being a triathlete, with no biking or swimming since July. 

I am getting out of wack because, besides not doing any S/B, I am not doing enough stretching and almost no yoga or strength. 

No running today, but it wouldn't kill me to do something else that could be beneficial.

Ok this stunk.  Decided to run beginning of the Glacier trail in Waukesha after I dropped my kids off at church and head out past Wales.  Spotty mile markers made pacing a little more difficult than normal.  Out was generally uphill, but the downhill did not really help on the return trip.  I was pretty much done at turn around, but my car was in Waukesha, so what was I going to do.  I guess after 6 days of running it is time for a rest.

  • 1h 45m 07s

Pretty chilly temps (low 20's), but I was dressed proper and didn't cause too much issue, except water bottles freezing.  Otherwise felt pretty comfortable and pleased with pace and effort.  At turn around found a trail in woods that I had never spotted before and walked in the woods for a few minutes and ate my shot bloks. Then I realized it is still hunting time and thought I better turn around before I get shot. ;)

  • 1h 02m 19s
  • 7.50 miles

  • 10m

pretty chilly with a high biting wind (wind chill was in the teens) Wind really helped me though. When it was at my back, it helped me physically go faster, when it was in my face it helped me mentally to go faster so I would get the F done!  With a week of sluggish runs, last two, make me feel better. Now two longer ones for the weekend.
