23min of 30sec hard exercises, 35sec of cardio recovery.
The hard exercises included arms with 10lb weights, lunges, squats, and abs. It was a great workout and I felt it the next day!
We did take Molly for a 1.77mile walk before dinner.

Friday, Oct 14th - off/rest day - worked on framing our new artwork!!

Saturday, Oct 15th - Long run...
So the training plan I am following had a 17mile (10 easy and 7 @8:15) run scheduled for today. I am tired. I referred to my Run Less, Run Faster book, and all their two week till race day runs were 13 miles. I decided to do 14. 7 easy and 7 @8:15. It was an okay run. I can tell that I am tired, so the cross training days are going to focus more on arms and abs. I know I will be tired on race day, but I want to be rested.

Splits -
1 mile - 8:59
2 - 8:44
3 - 8:53
4 - 8:33
5 - 8:36
6 - 8:37
7 - 8:40
8 - 8:15
9 - 8:14
10 - 8:19
11 - 8:15
12 - 8:12 - quick walk break before starting the last 2 miles.
13 - 8:10
14 - 8:10 - this mile was uphill, so I pushed myself.

Legs were tired, but I am happy with it.
Total - 14miles in 1:58.44
Looks like I can break 4 hrs for my marathon!

Sunday, Oct 16th - off/rest/recovery day. We will probably take Molly for a walk....

Enjoy!
