Last August 29, I ran 18 miles, the farthest since I took running as part of my healthy/active lifestyle. While my time of 3:04:07 was good for my age division, my paced on the last 2 miles was discouraging. I don't know where to get the strength to finish the next 8 miles. Hopefully, the next 4 weeks of training will help me finish my first full marathon. To increase my chances of finishing the event, I revised my training/workout for the month of Sept as follows:
Sun - long run 13-18-13-21
Mon - Fishing
Tues thru Fri - 3.1 miles run + 1 hr gym workout.
Sat - 2 hrs gym workout.
After the 21 miles long run, I will add walk - run - walk to my training.
