Feeling Under-Prepared

The NJ marathon is just over 5 weeks away. That means I have about 3 full weeks of training left. I've decided to taper for only two weeks for this race because I am not logging the 50-60+ mile weeks like I did for the NYC marathon. That's one reason I'm feeling under-prepared. The main culprit is that I decided to look over my training log from last season to compare where I am so far this season relative to the race date. I was definitely faster then. Even though I knew that, I can't help but to feel a little bit discouraged. Not enough mileage and my current speed workouts are slower. Bah.

If there's a silver lining to this, I am getting a good training base and start for the NYC marathon in November. Boston, here I come!
