So...you can imagine my trepidation when I returned on September 21 with only a handful of short runs under my belt for the whole month. I expected to be in real trouble. And maybe I am, but I also think the rest gave my legs a much needed break. I felt strong in those first two runs after the trip. I am working hard to attempt to return to a reasonable level of endurance in the long runs. My true test will come next weekend when I try my hand...or rather legs...at the Brooklyn Rock-n-Roll Half I'm signed up to run. It is sure to give me an indication of how this marathon will pan out since I'm just under a month away now!
Here's hoping for a quality October in the training department!
