Ok, that's a bit of melodrama, but I really could have passed out.
I have jumped into the the Hal Higdon Novice 2 schedule for a May 4 marathon, which means today I (barely) ran 9 miles at a 9:33 pace. I did it on a treadmill because my wife/mommy won't let me run outside in the Winter with the other kids. To compensate, I kicked up the incline to 1.0. I ran a 10.1 miler (at a slightly faster pace, same incline) on Tuesday and actually didn't feel as wiped as I did today.
Any thoughts on what I could do to make it through training? Sip a sports drink? Be more hydrated? I ate pretty well in the morning, but have been losing weight lately. Generally, I have been getting stictches.Ideally, I'd run the marathon at a 8:30-9:00 pace or better. It's my first.
