This week marks my return to marathon training as I prep for the Mercedes Marathon in February. I did a few 800 meter repeats at something close to 10k pace. I'm experimenting with some speed for the first time since the Savannah Marathon, but I'm trying to stay cautious. I will also be spending more time on track surface and less on concrete this go around. With a short training window, I am prioritizing staying healthy over making big gains. Prob a bit early to set goals, but whatever... I'm shooting for a sun-3:50 this go around.
I'm also not updating daily like last go around. That got way too tedious. This time I'll aim for less frequent yet more substantive posts. Let's get it!
