Marine Corps Marathon Week 10

Happy Labor Day! Hope everyone is enjoying their long weekend. 🙂 Last week’s training started off with a minor funk. I don’t know if it was a continuation of the “I’m so bored with running around Lake Merritt” feeling from

Weekly training recap: CIM Week 13 + Lake Chabot Trail Run Recap

Mon: Rest. Tues: 6 tempo miles on the calendar, but since my foot was still bugging me, I kept it to 6 miles at medium effort. It was an OK run pace-wise, but I felt kinda blah. Maybe it was
