Flying Pig Marathon: 9 weeks to go

Training is going well so far. Because of my schedule and the weather, I've had to switch up my days and also missed my 8x100 strides because I simply don't have a lot of actual solid ground to run in the other day. What is good is that I've kept up my mileage so I'm feeling strong right now.

I just took a look at last year's mileage and I'm, surprisingly, at double the mileage for the same period a year ago! I wasn't in marathon training last year and also R was moving to DC so there was a lot of days I could have been running that I was doing other things. Funny thing is, we have way more snow on the ground this year so it's a more severe winter.


Week 1: 31 miles

Week 2: 15 miles

Week 3: 22 miles

Week 4: 9 miles

Week 5: 17 miles

Week 6: 10.5 miles

Week 7: 17.5 miles

Week 8: 15 miles

Week 9: 26 miles

Total: 163 miles or 262.5K

Week 1: 24 miles

Week 2: 46 miles

Week 3: 34 miles

Week 4: 37 miles

Week 5: 42 miles

Week 6: 25 miles

Week 7: 40 miles

Week 8: 43 miles

Week 9: 45 miles

Total: 332 miles or 534K

Mileage creeps up this week. Here's the schedule, as usual up for tweaks

Monday: Rest
Tuesday: 10 with 5 at LT
Wednesday: 4 recovery
Thursday: 11 miles
Friday: Rest
Saturday: 5 recovery
Sunday: 17 miles

We've switched places this year! I remember when I was in marathon training last winter, you kept saying you were jealous of my mileage! Well, I am definitely jealous of your mileage this year!!

Great job!
