Friday, Oct 21st - The training plan had pilates listed, but I was tired and it was a long day, so I didn't do anything that resembled a workout. Fun!
Saturday, Oct 22nd - Long run day!
3miles @ 8:15
It was ~40deg when I started. I was in pants, long sleeve shirt, and gloves. I felt awful. It was hard to breath, my leg never felt like they warmed up - they were numb most of the run. Not a good experience to help with my confidence....
I did push through and I am going to just going to ignore how I felt!
The next long run is the marathon!!
1 mile - 8:57
2 - 8:22
3 - 8:38
4 - 8:30
5 - 8:32

Total time was 1:16.17.
Sunday, Oct 23rd - Lazy day full of chores around the house! Marathon is in one week!! I am starting to get nervous. I am in shape and should be fine, but I can't help but worry!
This coming week, I am going to skip the cross training days.
