Marathon Training Recap

The big day is almost here! I can’t believe that I’m actually going to have to run this marathon tomorrow.  After trying not to think about it for the past week, I am now panicking about it. I’m stressing over the little pre-race details – what to wear, what to eat and when to get there – but I’m trying to keep it in mind that I did the training and I’ll be fine.

Speaking of training, I thought I’d do a little training recap (something I didn’t do last time) to see what I actually did the in past four months. Here it goes:
