It is deload week for me.
I have one hell of a weekend ahead with a 23 miler on Saturday and the Canterbury half marathon on Monday.
So I am taking advantage of so many clients finishing their summer with a holiday and being a little lazy, no runs over 3 miles, no lifting, lots of walking and stretching.
This may send me slightly crazy! But I have a lot of pre reading to get through so I better set up my comfy seat in the window and charge that kindle.
I had to cut my long run a little short because my body was super sore today. I wanted to make it to 23, but I knew from the start of my run that it was going to be tough. I tried to hang on for as long as I could, but 18 was as far as I could go.
I’m so glad my husband ran this with me because I definitely wanted to quit about 5 times during the run and he convinced me to keep going!
This was my last long run of this training cycle for the Holland Haven Marathon and I’m proud of the training I’ve done. This is definitely the hardest I’ve trained since before I had my first son in 2015! I’m just going to enjoy the next three weeks and get myself mentally prepared to race.
I know I’ve put in the work and I know I can get to that finish line!
