Marathon Training Day 1, P90X Day 58

I started practicing for a marathon over the weekend, I just did not get in the full amount I wanted to on Sunday. I felt I may get in a second 5 mile run that afternoon but it did not happen, time just got away with errands.

My goal was to just run at a nice pace till I could not run anymore and see how far and what my time was. I figured I would get in about 2 hours without any problem, as long as the weather was cool. Instead it was ugly and I had to do my training indoors so I choose the eliptical since its easy on the knees.

Feel really good today, nothing sore. I am sure I could have did another good steady hour or more. I don't have anything set up, or signed up for per say its just one of my 2010 goals to do a full Marathon.

That workout did put me 1 day behind in my P90X program so I am on day 58 today not 59.

Here are my stats from my Sunday run on the eliptical:

1 st mile time = 12.00 mph level 1 resistance 1
2nd mile time = 11.00 level 4 resistance 15
3rd mile time = 10.00 level 4 resistance 20

Mile 4 & 5 = level 1 resitance 1 and I did not track my time on the last 2 miles.
Here is how I ended up:
11.00 average mile = 5 miles = 55.00 min
9800 steps

I have not done this long of steady cardio in a very long time, but I felt I could have gone longer. This was a very nice pace for me, and I added the inclines just to get a better average on what it would be like on the pavement.

Todays workout & snack:

Post workout smoothie batch (Makes 6 cups)
1 c spinach (cooked in microwave)
3 scoop vanilla whey
3 bananas
3 c coconut milk
1 c blueberries........DELISH!
