Confession: I just sang that in my head to the tune of DJ Khaled’s “All I Do Is Win.” Don’t pretend like you didn’t.
So that’s my weak excuse for not blogging for the past few weeks. I am constantly running. Or at least that’s how it feels. And I figured all four of you didn’t want to read about 16-mile long runs on Saturdays or finding a balance of nutrition that doesn’t leave me so hungry I woof down pancakes like a fat kid woofs down pancakes.
My friend, Eileen, gave me the heads up that I would want to eat all the time once the 30+ mile weeks started, and she was right. I’m pretty sure I can’t get full. Maybe I have a tapeworm. Whatever it is, it’s kinda cool to eat basically anything I want.
At any rate, training is coming along just fine, except for one thing. The longer mid-week runs are making me exhausted. It’s been too hot to run in the evenings, so I’ve been trying to get them finished in the morning. But that means getting up at 5:15 and pounding the pavement for a few hours before a full day of work. And when I get home, I’m completely worn out.
Marathoners – any advice for getting through the next three weeks of heavy training before my taper?
