(7 miles) Despite having good weather, there weren't too many people at training this morning. I was able to focus on my own pace though and did 7 miles in 1:46:09 and I am very happy with that pace! At this point I wouldn't be able to maintain that pace for 26.2 miles, but I could probably do a half marathon at that pace so I'm headed in the right direction! 56 days until the New Albany Walking Classic 1/2 Marathon and 168 days until the Disney full marathon!
(7 miles) I coached this morning and I'm so proud of my current walkers! They are doing awesome and are so motivated! Once the 1/2 marathoners were done I headed back out to see if I could catch up with the full marathoners. I wasn't able to catch up (my full marathoners this season are all alumni and are SUPER fast walkers) so I ran back with some of the runners. Yes...the walk coach was running. It was only about a mile and a half but I'm paying the price now. I think I'll stick to the walking. I did manage to get in a 15 minute mile walking which is my goal pace for race day.

(2 miles + cross training) I didn't get much training in over the weekend. A bad sunburn (as in I'm boycotting Banana Boat Spray SPF 30) caused some issues but I'm back at it today. I start a new job tomorrow but I already have plans to make sure I still get my miles in this week while I adjust to the new work environment. Fundraising is going great! A lot of checks have come this week but they won't post online for at least another week. Thank you so much to my wonderful supporters!
