I knew I was going to swap Saturday and Sunday because we celebrated Father’s Day Saturday so I just didn’t have time to get the LR in before all the festivities and such. It worked. I’m not a big fan of doing LRs on Sunday because then I start the week very tight and tired and HUNGRY, but sometimes it’s unavoidable. Not a big deal.

This week I felt pretty good. Started feeling pretty tired and worn down Wednesday evening/Thursday morning and never really shook the feeling. I think I need to start focusing on the non-gym elements of marathon training—mainly sleep and diet. I need to start focusing on WHAT I’m eating and not calories. I need to try to get more sleep, which might mean changing 1 morning workout to an evening one, which does not appeal to me AT ALL. We’ll see.
