I can’t believe I am already 4 weeks into marathon training. It’s flown by! I feel like it was just yesterday that I “officially” kicked off marathon training, but now I am already a 1/4 of the way through it. Eek! It’s going to be here before I know it!

Week 3 was a step-back week and included a fun trip to Canyon Ranch. I had planned to do my tempo run for the week there, but after a hike and a ShockWave class, I just didn’t have the energy to do it. I still got in a few miles on the treadmill, but I listened to my body and cut the run short. During Week 4, things ramped up again, and I finished the week with 22.4 miles, which brings my January total to 78.1 miles. Holy cow.
