Countdown to Race Day


Week 16 has arrived at last!  My final week of training.  Countdown to the marathon is less than a week away.  

Yesterday I completed my final long run, a ten-miler.  It went ok at just a little over 1:30.  I’ve been fighting a lingering cough the last few days–something that I must have picked up on my flight back from Denver.  Planes are breeding grounds for germs and I usually return with something.  So my breathing on Saturday was less than ideal.  This week, I plan to make a full recovery, complete with lots of sleep and healthy eating. While I was busy today I did rest my body for a change.  A few more shorter runs this week and I’ll be set for the big day ahead. 

Week 15 Recap (11/7-11/12): 4 days of running totalling 25 miles, 2 cross training workouts (including weights), 1 yoga session and 100 push ups

About mileoneandcounting

I'm a young professional living in the Washington, DC area. Since moving here in 2007 I have honed a passion for running and fitness. Growing up I played soccer and softball (and tested track & field for one year). After college I ran a few 5K races, but running was really only a means to staying in shape for me. Never in my wildest imagination had I thought I'd ever run a marathon, let alone three. Nor did I think I'd get the running bug after doing so, but I'll admit I'm hooked! Over the years my blog has grown into so much more than a running blog though. Sometimes I have deep thoughts. Other times I'm simply sharing a training story or a review of a product. Here's the place where you'll learn about me through my many adventures--even I enjoy going back to re-read some posts from time to time. I've also been able to hone my love for health and wellness through my business called IDLife which stands for Individually Designed Life. I'd love to help inspire you to live your best life yet so please don't hesitate to reach out to me and may my words resonate with you. See you on the trails...
