Lemongrass touched on the mind-boggling frustration that we runners commonly put on a few if we’re marathon training. We know it’s stressful, but be careful with how you manage it, and make sure you’re fueling your body with all the nutrients it needs!

We also had a great Training Basics post about heat acclimatization from Mint, some chick told the story of her first marathon finish and Mint came back to us with a Friday 5 to send her three young half-marathon trainees off to their first race with a bang! (Good luck, boys!)
Weight management seemed to be the heavy topic of the week though (sorry, couldn’t resist), and our commenter of the week dove right into the discussion in a way that resonated universally with the Salty Bloggers.
