My new goal for the Rock n Roll Marathon is now 3:15ish. I know the 3:07 goal is never going to happen. My training for the last 4-5 weeks has been very disappointing. I've been eating poorly, missing speed sessions and have not been getting in any strength training. I am in better shape than last year when I ran a 3:26 so I definitely expect to beat that. We found out that we got a lottery spot into St. George again this year. I'm going to create an actual training plan and schedule to follow as I aim to break 3:00 for the first time.
My eating/drinking was simply atrocious last week as well. My goal this week is to get back into some type of healthier eating plan, especially since the marathon is now only 3 weeks away. Looking back at what I ate for the day, it looks like it was pretty bad again.
My work schedule from now until the end of June is going to be ridiculously busy. I have a bad feeling my 3 week taper might end up being a bit more tapered then is really necessary. Training for this marathon started out with so much potential, but it's certainly ending as a huge disappointment. Hopefully I can still salvage something out of it and be at a high enough level in one month to be able to jump right back into training for St. George.
