I feel a little strange writing this post. It all seems so surreal that in a few days I will be attempting to complete a marathon. I did my last training run today. It’s all done. Just gotta rest and trust the training was enough. That I did enough. The hay is in the barn, so to speak.
Tuesday – Key Run #1 Track Repeats (6 x 400 @1:40)
It was an oddly humid and gray day. I completed these on the treadmill at 9.2 mph (1:38 for each interval). All good.
Thursday – Key Run #2 Tempo Run (3 miles @8:38)
A nice easy run. Long enough to feel like something, but at a pace where I’m not working hard, but also not completely coasting it either. I did it on a treadmill because I didn’t want to risk anything. Last thing I need now is a fall caused by me tripping over a twig (has happened in the past). I completed this in 24:52 (8:18) with a fast finish as I have been finishing my runs these days. I love doing a fast finish on my training runs because I think it’s really been helping me with in not fading away at the end.
Wineglass, here I come!
