Full Marathon Training Update

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.


  1. Pretty impressive time for a long run! Good luck in Long Beach!

  2. Thank you! I think, I am running beyond my comfort zone. On my next long run of 18 miles, I will pace my self and compare the outcome with my first 18. Good luck to your upcoming race.

  3. Thanks for following my blog, Sir Arthur. I will also be following yours, and hopefully, learn lessons along the way. Good luck in your upcoming runs!

  4. Thanks, Julius! Hope meeting you at the Condura event in February. Take care and run safely.
