Training Week of 2/17–3 weeks until Shamrock Marathon

Another week down and only 3 weeks until the Shamrock Marathon. This week I only got in one marathon specific workout…..a 35k long run on Monday. I had intended to go 40k, but decided to do 35k and push the last 5k to get my body running 5:10/mile when tired. The run beat me up more than I expected and I ended up taking it pretty easy the rest of the week. Today (Tuesday) I have a 5 x 5k workout scheduled, but once again it is snowing….I sure hope it stops and clears by this afternoon!!!
