August Mileage

August was a continuation of marathon training without any missed runs. Woo hoo! I continued running with  Chicago Area Running Association for my weekly long run on Saturdays. Running with a group makes long runs so much more tolerable, especially at 615 in the morning. I kept up with yoga on Thursdays, which is running rest day for me. Other than that I did a small bit of ab work, but running took over for my workouts in August.

Mileage: 178.35

Average Pace: 8:53

2013 Mileage: 762.65

A Look Ahead: The month of September will include more long runs on Saturdays in prep for the Chicago Marathon next month. I will run my ultimate distance before the marathon, 2 runs at 20 miles. Stretching and ice baths will be essential to stay healthy with these long distances. Is training over yet?

  1. Sounds like your training is going really well. I love training with a group. I recently started coaching a CES group out of Fleet Feet Old Town’s store and I love it. Good luck with your 20 miles!

  2. Keep up the great running! I’m loving the change in weather here, and how much easier my runs feel!
