This morning I completed my last “workout” before my marathon on Sunday. I didn’t feel awesome, but I’ve learned to not worry. All of my workouts have felt better as they get longer. I have no doubt that I would have felt better had I run longer…especially since the last 5 minutes felt the easiest.
Valley Centre Loop (715 meters): 20 minute warm-up….6 laps at marathon pace/effort….15 minute cool-down. Splits (actual mile pace in ()): 4:36 (5:10)–4:33 (5:07)–4:32 (5:06)
Later today I’m going to get in a really easy 30 minutes then the next 3 days will be super easy. I plan on running 40 minutes tomorrow and 30 minutes both Friday and Saturday. I’ll do a few striders on Saturday, but that’s it!
