Oh peeps, we are TIRED.
We are at that point in training where our muscles feel fatigued and we feel broken. But we are doing it. And we're doing 90% of it together---that's what keeps me going. I do not know how people train for a marathon without a partner to hold you accountable. Sooo necessary.
New shoes this week---a necessity. Still using my Newton Gravity shoes. They are glorious! And my precious husband found the model they are phasing out online for $111---Big savings from the usual $175 plus tax. I was thrilled. It's the model I was already running in, so it works for me.
I need to buckle it down from here on out---better nutrition, more sleep, more fluids. Becaue next week our mileage increases about 30% and we start speed workouts. We haven't even begun to see "broken" yet.
