Three more weeks until the Houston Marathon

Su – 18 miles, average pace 7:08 mpm, wanted to run 22 miles but just ran out of time, a nice and cool 49°F starting at 3:40PM

I actually ran all of the scheduled doubles this week. Well, sort of ran them all; Saturday was supposed to be a 6 and 4 recovery double but I just ran 11 easy miles all together. Tuesday through Saturday was a long stretch of unusually warm and humid weather. I know if January 18th is anything like those days, even sub-3 is out the window.
