Treadmill- cadence work

Man, today I did not want to run. I really tried to talk myself out of it, but knowing my matrathon is just over 2 weeks away, I figured I had to do something. And that is basically what this workout was, it was something. It was a short slow run, but nonetheless, it was a run. I can only take solace in knowning that I did get up and do something.

I have really started to dread my workouts, and I am not sure that is the optimal feeling to have 15 days before your marathon.

3:19 PM

Today I have a 5 miel run scheduled and unfortunately it looks like it is going to be a dread mill run. One thing I want to focus on is my run cadence I have never even looked at this before, but I was talking to a friend of mine today and he asked me about it. We discussed it awhile and I figure that I should take a look and see what my cadence is while running. I am hoping for a cadence of 90, but I doubt it will be that high.

So I figured out that my run cadence now is approximately 86 and my HR stays around 154. When I did focus on my cadence, it made my run seem easier, I do not know if that was because I was focusing on something besides the miles or what, but this is something I need to look into more.

I am really starting to get nervous about this marathon, I have been in such a funk these past 2 weeks that I really am starting to wonder if I can even finish it. I had a goal time set, but now I am questioning that as well. everything is up in the air for some reason... I don't like feeling like this.

very windy run

It was a pretty uneventful run, lots of wind that day. Only thing to say was that my hip flexors really bothered me, so much that I had to stop and try and stretch it out as best I could.  Still not 100% confident on the full 26.2 miles, but having done at least one 20 miler and a couple of 16 milers gives me a little confidence.
