Back in training

Well it has been a week now since my marathon. I am feeling great and ready to start training for the next race. After I finished the marathon I was very discouraged and was questioning why I wanted to run a marathon. I guess those are all normal thoughts right after you get finished. Now I feel more determined than ever to run another marathon and accomplish a PR. So tonight I ran 7 miles. I felt very good running. It is very peaceful running at night, there is not a lot of traffic and not distractions. Just me and the road. I ran 7.25 miles in 61 minutes. Thats a 8.24 pace. Now if I could just maintain that pace for 26.2 miles then I could qualify for Boston. I am so determined to qualify. I am just going to keep training hard and hopefully I will meet my goal. I look forward running tomorrow!!!

  1. I'd be happy if I could maintain 8:24 pace for a 5k. ;)

    Does a marathon race course have to be designated as a BQ course or does any USA Track & Field certified course work? Galveston??? I read some race reviews from last year and somebody said the first hill is at mile 10.5 and it's only 0.1 miles long. That would eliminate the hill issue. ;)
