    You did a 15-mile run followed immediately by a 6-mile run?! That’s the equivalent of having done your longest pre-marathon training run! You’re going to rock the marathon considering it’s still months away. Just be careful you don’t over train.

      Oh I wish that were the case! When I list my training days, they are not all consecutive. The above is over a span of 2.5 weeks. In fact I missed a week of training between the 15 mile run and 6 mile run due to chaos at work. So tried to get back on track this week and did pretty well. Doing another short run this weekend of 6 miles and then going to try to squeeze in 17 miles next week before I go on vacation for 3 weeks.
