So after thinking more about the topics in my post earlier this week, I decided to take a little visit over to the McMillan Running Calculator. Now, I always thought this was a pretty interesting and helpful training tool, but it wasn’t until this week that I was totally amazed by it.
And why? Well take a look at a few of my race PRs…
YES! They all match up…for a 3:45 marathon. This, my friends, is a good thing. I mean, sure, my BIG goal here is to sub 3:35 (my Boston qualifying time) but here, now, a little more than two years into my running journey – and the numbers are stacked in my favor to be ~10 minutes from an incredible goal? I am stoked.
I am going to take all that I’ve been learning – from running, blogging and reading all of your amazing feedback (seriously, friends, I am so incredibly inspired by all of the amazing knowledge that y’all have been dropping on me lately) and keep moving forward! After all, that’s what it says on my RoadID!
Do you use the McMillan Running Calculator? Or something else? Share!
