Today is Day 1 of phase 3 of my marathon plan! Now I get to see if the last 6 months has prepared my body to withstand the rigors of marathon specific training. I finally get to do some fast running again also. I’m excited for that
Mondays will mostly be tempo days. My marathon will be a downhill marathon so I started today with a downhill tempo run. I ran up the hill comfortably for 5.5 miles then turned around and ran 5 miles down at 6:24 average then did 0.5 mile cool down. It was about a 1000 ft climb then descent.
