Marathon training is officially [more than] halfway over! I almost can't believe it. Today marks the start of week 12. It's kind of been a whirlwind, to be honest.

This past week was the highest mileage week out of the 18 week plan. I ran 36 miles. Pretty impressive, huh?

The long run this week was 18 freezing cold but sunny miles along the towpath. Surprisingly, I wasn't sore at all after my 18 miler. Not sure how I accomplished that. I was incredibly tired that afternoon, but I think that's fairly normal.

I absolutely love running on the towpath! For one, it's flat and I kind of hate hills. Hills are work! I mostly love the towpath because of all of the wildlife you can see along your run. A couple miles into our run, we saw a coyote! A few miles past our turnaround we saw 2 bald eagles soaring in the sky. Not to mention the plethora of robins and red-winged blackbirds. Ahh.. spring is close!!

Along with everyone else, I can't wait for the weather to warm up. Word on the street is that it'll be 71(!!) on Thursday. I'll believe it when I see it. Jezebel is excited for the warm weather so she can hang out in the sunroom and watch the birds and squirrels.
