The Grind

Today was a real motivational struggle. It is amazing how at times a 9 mile run can seem like a breeze while a 5 mile run can be hard fought with every step.
Today was the end of my training week, I finished with 32 miles for the week, a total of 4 hours and 28 minutes running, to give me an average pace of about 8 minutes and 20 seconds per mile. This concludes week 3 of my pre-marathon training, I have 4 weeks to go before I dig into the more difficult weeks and 21 weeks until the marathon.
Beautiful evening, 62 degrees. 5 miles, 35:54 / 7:44 pace.
