I got up at 6;30am, and did 60 minutes foam roller, plus a
small bowl of cereal. Started running at 7:30am, and completed
running 149 minutes later.
The good news is that I was not tired at all, and kept
similar speed all the 16 miles. If I can keep this speed
I would finish marathon within 243 minutes. My goal is 270
minutes. Seems like I can reach my goal easily.
I finished my first 16 mile run with Robert last year, right
after Urban Cow Half Marathon. He trained for the CIM,
and I just ran for fun. But I got IT bands after that run.
And I felt the pain for about 1 month.
After that Injury, my goal is just no injury and run slowly and
plan to complete my first half marathon smoothly.
I will write blogs for my running training and see how I can improve
to finish my first Marathon. And If I like the first run, I would run one
marathon every year after that
