Colfax Training Week 13: Not the best week

Chicago Marathon Training: Week 9 – Recovery!

Some weeks running is just… hard. This week I felt like I was running with lead shoes, and that’s understandable, since I just PR’ed my half marathon and worked really hard last week. But this week, I just didn’t have it in me to give it my all. Maybe it was just that my allContinue reading “Chicago Marathon Training: Week 9 – Recovery!”
