Actual marathon training begins tomorrow; this week was a so-called “base” week, making sure that all was in shape for the gradually intensifying training of the next 16 weeks. I’m hoping that reporting in here will keep me honest and on-track, but we’ll see:
Mileage for week: 14
Number of run days: 4
Long run for week: 4
Aches, pains, complaints: none.
(Okay, one complaint: jet-lag. Waking up this morning at 5.30 am EST was excruciating, and I’ve spent the entire day sense struggling against falling asleep. But I’ll be safely seated on my plane in an hour, and I’ll be able to give up the struggle then.)
