|Angel voices singing "Aaaaaaahhhh!"|
Yesterday was a huge milestone for my wife who logged her first 20 mile run. We have been training together for what will be her first marathon in Portland.
There was a time not long ago when my wife would say "I cannot EVER see myself running a marathon!" and she meant it. Look at her now conquering a 20 miler. In order to accomplish this feat, she decided to train running 4:1 intervals and following the Hal Higdon Intermediate 1 training plan with one modification. She decided to do a 23 mile final long run instead of 20. That's coming up in two weeks.
So far so good. It's been great motivating and running with her throughout her training. We're looking forward to Portland!
