I have about 13 and half weeks until my first marathon on Dec 10th 2017. This past week I ran just over 15kms in 5 days. I have a long long way to go. I am being careful not to push myself too hard while I have been getting back into running the last 2 weeks but I can’t help but feel some serious pressure that I am very far behind my training. Even today I was planning on running 6km up from the 3.2kms that I have normally been doing but I had horrible shin splints that completely stopped my at only 2.1kms in. I know exactly what that means, I haven’t been stretching nearly enough or correctly.
This week I am going to do a light warm up and then do some light stretching and then continue my runs to help my legs get back to where they used to be.
This is definitely going to be much harder than I first imagined but I can do it! I know it!
