Week 9 of 20 Marathon training

Another week is in the books.  It was a long and hard week and I am glad to see it end.  I am not sure what my deal was this week, but I didn't really feel 100% running this week.  It felt like I was putting a lot more effort into the speed that I was accomplishing.  I am not sure if it was a week with dead legs or something involving my diet.  The good news is that I did start to feel better towards the end of the week and felt much more like myself today.  Also, I set a new personal best on Saturday.  I ran my longest run ever at 18 miles.  Unfortunately, I didn't get any lifting in this week.  Other than that.  It is all  systems go on training.  It is another busy one this week.  As I am currently 7 days into a 10 day run grind.  I also have my 2nd race of the year on Sunday.
