Week 2 started yesterday! day 2, week 2

Yesterday was day 1 of my 2nd week into marathon training. The schedule was a rest day, but of course, I did not listen. lol I ended up at the gym doing 40 minutes of intervals on the AMT machine and then lifted for biceps and triceps.

Since today is day 2 and I am scheduled to run 3 miles, I mapped a 4.25 mile route. It's going to be a hot one! It's 87 degrees today! I also have to cut the grass, so I will consider that an added bonus exercise for today. lol I NEVER cut the grass, that is Chris's job! :o)

I had a gentleman approach me while I was on the AMT machine last night at the gym. First he just said "hi, how are you doing". I responded with "hello". I thought maybe he had me confused with someone else he knew. He then came up to me and said "you did a good job in the Trenton 10K race. You finished right behind me and just in front of my friend". He also told me that he always sees me running near my home because he runs the same route. We chatted for a couple minutes and then off he went to run the track.

I always recognize people that I have seen at races. You can talk to them as if you know each other and it's never weird. I think runners have a certain connection with each other.


  1. It has been fun to read about your training. I'm on week 3 of my plan this week. I'm also using Hal Higdon. Best of luck to you!

  2. I agree, runners do have that connection. One of the things I love most about running!
