I am not really taking marathon training seriously. I plan to run and finish, but no more. I don't really like the idea of running for hours. Who knows what will happen. I didn't want to run a half marathon either and now I have done four. Still two months away from the marathon and one 20 mile race planned. I did 28 miles for the week.
This Saturday I ran with the folks at Team Odyssey. I did 9.4 road miles with Chris who runs a little fast than me at races. After I finished I waited in the car while Sara was working on doing 18 miles. She came back to the car after I had been there for a half hour and asked if I would run 1 to 1.5 trail miles with her. I agreed and we started out. At about 1 mile she says, "I'm sure glad I don't have to run these last 3-4 miles by myself. What?! What happened to 1 to 1.5?? Oh well. We did 4.3 so I got over 13 in.
