Marathon Training Week 10 and Big News!

Here's the summary:

Monday: Rest
Tuesday: Speed Session (3.5 miles)
Wednesday: 5 miles on the treadmill
Thursday: 3 miles on the treadmill and Cycle Hip Hop
Friday: Rest
Saturday: 15 (!) miles
Sunday: 90 minute sweet surrender yoga class

Saturday was my longest run ever! It was tough. I'm starting to learn why marathon training is hard. It really hurt and was mentally tough. But I did it, and I feel good now :) I'm feeling really solid because I'm getting in the mileage that I need to.

Now for the big news!

I am starting a new job this morning! I will be an administrative assistant for a real estate office. It's going to be much closer to home and has much more professional opportunities for me. However, because this blog is about my running, I'll just focus on how it will help that. It will help mostly because it is closer to home, the gym, and most of the trails I run. Because it's closer to home, I'm going to try to start running in the mornings. Because it's closer to the gym, I can still go to Cycle Hip Hop. Because it's closer to the trails, that means less treadmill time.

Needless to say, I'm a happy camper :) 16 miles for a long run next week. Keep me in your prayers :P

In two weeks, I'll be running my first half marathon of the year, the Rock N Roll USA in Washington, DC. Super excited for that!

Who else is running the Rock N Roll USA?
