The marathon is less than a month away and I’m right where I was hoping to be with my training. Only one more hard week of training, then I’ll begin to ratchet it down the next three weeks. Had another solid week of training.
Sleep: (B) Got close to 8 hours of sleep most nights, but the quality was not great.
