Chicago Marathon Training: Day three. (Hot!!)

Today was hot.
I ran semi-quickly. (about a minute slower than my race pace, which is pretty good for a training run for me.)
It was hot. Did I say that already?
It was supposed to be five miles. I ended up with a little more than five and a half. I'm really bad at stopping when I'm supposed to. Part of it is that I want to make sure that I'm not short of the distance that I am supposed to have.
The running part wasn't too bad, but the heat was really rough to run in. I might need to think about getting up early to run. ....ha.

Either it is rainy or it is extremely hot outside. I guess that when it is hot, more people feel like running. There were many more people out on the trail today than were there yesterday.

I'm almost done with week one of training.

Clearly, I don't really feel like writing.
The end.

Goal: 1000 miles/366 days
So far: 258.7 miles/173 days
To go: 741.3 miles/193 days


  1. Woooooo you did it! What training plan are you using? Gooooo Aliiiiiiciaaaaaaa.

  2. Great job. You are going to catch up with your training goals at this rate! I'm glad you are doing this training plan. It can be hard in FL to get running going b/c like you said it is really hot or really rainy. But you are doing great!
