Our runs are diminishing, but so are our numbers.
I just found out a couple guys in our group who were planning to run the marathon but now will not be able to to. A couple guys have been called up for reserve duty in the Israeli army. It is much more important than running a marathon, and they will definitely benefit from the fitness they achieved through training for the marathon.
But on the other hand, they spent four months training for the marathon and then get called up just a few days before the big day. It is a shame they could not complete what they set out to do.
Our kilometers are also diminishing. Today's recovery run was supposed to be 10 km. I only had time for 7.5km so that is what I ran. At an average pace of 6.12/km.
Tomorrow is a workout at 10km, then the closing run of the training season at 5km. Then the marathon.
