Training - Week 13 - Week 11 of Marathon Training - Wednesday

My lower legs around my ankles are pretty sore. I knew I had to get through this day with a rest day tomorrow and light cross training on Friday. My body always falls apart around this time each week. This will be my 6th day in a row of training going back to last Thursday with the bike ride and weights. The body is in need of some rest.

I was able to get my 5 miles in today. I ran super easy to not cause any injuries or further damage to the body. I ran the 5 miles in 42:14 for 8:24 pace. It felt good to get out and shake things out.

I am tired and most of this is due to being back at school. It is quite an adjustment getting into the routine of running and then teaching. I should be good to go after this week, but I am have very tired going to be quite early.

Hooray for rest days! I cannot wait to sleep in until 5:30 tomorrow.
