Winter Marathon Training!?

The Tokyo Marathon is 42 days from today. Training through the Maine winter for this event is proving to be likely more of a challenge than finishing in the event itself!

With six weeks out, my training program called for an 18 miler today …. 24F, 5-10 mph winds and a hilly course. The 13:28 splits were consistent with my plan to break 5 hours in Japan. I am hoping that the weather will remain cooperative so I can do the 40-50 miles per week outdoors instead of the treadmill or indoor track. I tried the treadmill in Montreal––boring. I did a 15 miler on the UMaine indoor track two weeks ago and thought they would need to unscrew me from the floor!
