{base training: week 7} Hit the road, Jack.

As I start the last two weeks of the base-building phase of my marathon training plan, I'm feeling stronger and ready to dive into full-on, no-holds barred marathon training. I'm excited and looking forward to the challenge and to develop my marathon racing skills. Which, to be honest, have been severely lacking.

This week, I'm on the road. The first part of the week Paul and I are in San Jose (my hometown, yay!) following Manchester United on their pre-season tour. The last part of the week, I'm in Phoenix for a girls' weekend. I tend to run more miles while I travel because: 
  1. Shiny new (to me)places to run
  2. No cross-training activities (cycle class, TRX)
Exciting news!  If you are interested in running for Oiselle, new team spots are opening up on July 31. Click HERE for more info.
