Austin Marathon: T-5 Weeks Recap

I was sick (it may or may not have been this flu everyone’s been talking about) from Sunday until Friday… so my running suffered. I did, however, still get in about 30 miles this week, which ain’t too shabby for being sick for so much of it. I also ran my longest run to date (18.4 miles), and it went pretty well.

My sick runs:

My long run (when I was feeling a bit better):

I managed just north of 8:20 pace for my long run. Which isn’t terrible… if I did that for another 8 miles it would translate into the top range of what I’d be happy with for my marathon time. But I’d really prefer to be around 8:00 pace come race day. But not bad for a sick week.
