Mesa-PHX Marathon Training – Week 2/10

Still chasing 3000 km for the year! Lots of double-run days have been happening lately (my own agenda) and I’m loving it!! I know it’s not uncommon for certain training plans or styles to call for doubles, but this is my first experience with them and I’m so into it! Hey Coach are you reading this? LOL.

Usually I follow the schedule laid out for me by Lifelong Endurance to the letter, but like I mentioned last week, the Phoenix marathon is not a big goal race for me, so I’ve been flexible. That being said, once I finish this week and reach my (insignificant) goal of 3000 km in 2017, I’ll return to following the training plan like a good athlete πŸ™‚
