Day 88

88 days does not seem like that long when I think about running a marathon and what my goal time is.   While I’ll be happy with a PR (3:29:58), my GOAL is 3:19. That’s a 7:35 pace.

The first 3.5 weeks of training have gone well.  I’ve felt strong on my long runs and am building my mileage during the week.  I ran 11 miles last Saturday, drop down to 10 this Saturday, and then start ramping up into the long long runs.  Next week, I start my mid-week runs where I do a few miles at marathon pace in the middle of the run.  Each week, the distance at marathon pace increases.
