Have to cross train.
Through-out the previous marathon training plan I completed scratched off cross training. I basically considered picking up the kids for bath, meals, changes, and bedtime as my personal form of cross training. Well after a not-so-strong finish in The SF Marathon, I’ve come to believe that I cheated myself. I absolutely completed my goal of barely beating the 6 hour cut-off time, but a strong finish should also have been a goal that day. As a result I started cross training yesterday and just completed a quick session this morning. Squats, chest presses, dumbbell work, as well as stretching. These aren’t long training sessions, but I’ll take what I can cram into my schedule.
