The run of the 24th of November was my 31st training run, the last run of the 9th week! (Week 9: Nov. 18th-Nov. 24th)
31 runs in, 9 weeks down, 16 weeks to go and I’ll be running the Saturday Rock N’ Roll Marathon in Washington, DC.
Week 9 Statistics!
- 30:29 minutes
- 8:57 /mile
- 3.40 miles
Notable week 9 information:
- WELL, even though Chris and I knew it was upcoming, we failed to follow the schedule we have been following. Week 9 was supposed to be the switching point from time trainings (we’ve been running 30 minutes for a while) to distance trainings. We will start running the distance training Monday; with 3 miles being the goal, Wednesday; with 4 miles, Thursday; 3 miles, and Saturday; 5 miles. Each Saturday from here until quite near the end, an extra mile will be added on, so in 5 months we’ll be running 10 miles on Saturday. I’m a bit worried, but not from a running/fitness perspective, but more in a mental one. I’m worried that I’ll be bored to tears running 10 miles. I might be loading up the iPhone with an audio book to keep me company.
