In addition to my random posts, I am going to be tracking my marathon training as I ramp up my mileage for the Dallas White Rock Marathon. I haven't ran the marathon in a number of years nor have I ran 50-60 miles per week, but I plan on changing that over the next 16 weeks. Today's run starts that journey and there will be more to come.
Dallas White Rock Marathon Training
Day: Week 1, Day 1
Distance: 4.35 Miles
I ran a little over 4 miles today. I didn't have a training plan put together but I knew starting out in small increments would be a great place to start. I ran the first mile at about 8:00/mile. I then picked up the pace to about 7:00/mile for the next two miles. I finished the remaining 1.35 miles at about 8:00/mile pace again.
It was a good run. I felt good and the weather was only 85 degrees. The heat index said 90, but I didn't pay much attention to that. My tempo pace felt good and my legs didn't feel too thick like they had in the past.
Happy to have day one under my belt and looking forward to many more happy miles.
