Runny Noses

Vicki and I 3 MilerThis is the last week of training for the full marathon next Sunday. According to Hal Higdon’s marathon training schedule (Novice 2); I am to run 3 miles on Tuesday and 2 miles on Wednesday. I did just that!

Of course, Tuesday’s weather was beautiful but extremely cold! Temperatures were just below freezing with very windy conditions! Our exposed faces were numb and our noses were running faster than we were! It felt like we were the only ones in the park other than the park ranger. It feels amazing to be outside and enjoy the scenery even if we were nuts running out in the sub-freezing conditions. It was fun and I’d do it again – I know Vicki would!

Juliann and I 2 MilerWednesday’s forecast was slightly better but still below freezing. There were very little winds and the sun was shining brightly. Juliann and I ran the same route in Tyler Park; the one that we learned how to run together for our very first time. Juliann does a great job guiding! I am proud of her! The idea of just running two miles seems absurd but you have to trust and respect the marathon schedule. Hal’s schedule was created based on experience and wisdom AND it’s FREE!

I can’t believe it – there is only one more run before the marthon. Holy cow! Wow, where did the time go? Now I can enjoy two days of rest before one more two miler to do on Saturday prior to Sunday’s race. Yikes!
