Marathon Training Brief Update!

As the NYC marathon approaches I'm constantly thinking "am I doing enough?" I wonder if I started training too late, if I'm following the right program, if I understand what I'm doing and I guess more importantly, if I'm going to be injured on the course. 

I haven't tackled 26.2. miles in my life but here's the chance for me to do so. When I trained for my first half marathon I was nervous, but not as nervous as I am with a full. This could be stemming from me never wanting to run 26.2 miles and now here I am faced with this amazing to do opportunity so.

So what's the problem? Why can I seem to get out my own head? Who knows. But I do know that I will be running this marathon on November 6th no matter what. Even though I am nervous I am excited that I even get the chance to do this. I will be apart of the 1% that runs a marathon in their lifetime. 

As far as training goes, I am pretty much on schedule for the most part, I realized that I missed my long run this past weekend of nine miles, but I pray that I wont miss my long run this weekend of 10 miles and if I do, I plan to make it up during the week. I need to focus up when it comes to these long runs and make sure I don't miss anymore. Keep me in your thoughts as I tackle on 10 miles this weekend. 

Until next time beauties.
