The post below is part of a series of posts about the DICK’S Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon weekend of events for which I have been selected to be a 2019 Pittsburgh Marathon official blogger. I’ve received my race registration fee in exchange for promotion of the event. All opinions are 100% my own.  This post also contains affiliate links. 

Starting to question my sanity. Between the injury and changing clients at work, this update is light. Running feels like EXACTLY what I need but isn’t feasible with our life schedule. Maybe I am finally admitting I’m aging and can no longer “do it all”. Hmmmph.

Training Update

Tuesday 3/26: 2 mile speed work, averaged 11:47/mile – Greg spent his birthday evening listening to me talk about my new shoes (Altra Tokyo Escalante Racers) and my speed work. I did .25 mile splits, rested 30 seconds between, and amazed myself with what I pulled off.

Head to my Instagram to see my photo!

Wednesday 3/27: 2.0 miles, 13:30/mile – Slower than I’d like, but I was taking it easy after my speed work.

Then….I rested. Greg had work. I had work. Life. No running since it is bothering me fiercely. Praying I get a chance to run soon.
