Marathon Training Fatigue

Marathon Training Fatigue

Last week has been absolutely blah with regards to training. Even more so than the previous weeks. I didn’t feel any inclination to run at all, and even through I have done my track workout this week I still feel blah about waking up early and getting a run in. And the worst .- I didn’t care!

Running along the Niagara Falls, US Side

Running along the Niagara Falls, US Side

Goodbye, Runner’s World

Goodbye, Runner’s World

About 8-9 years ago, as a brand new runner who knew absolutely nothing about running, I gave myself a New Year’s Gift – a subscription to the Runners World Magazine. I would look forward to every magazine and soak up the columns and articles.
