Week 4 was a rough week, as far as training went. I was unmotivated and tired, and I slacked off a bit at the beginning of the week. By the end, I found new motivation, and week 5 has started off on a much higher note. I’m hoping that the momentum continues through the holidays—they’re … More Austin Marathon Training, Week 4
