Tomorrows race+ some easy warm-up and cool down miles ought to get me my 46-47 miles this week. A couple of observations:
Recovery runs have great benefit! Keep the pace slow but the form good. Work out the kinks. Refuel. Rest; even while running.
Breaking training is like skipping class...it can be fun! I ate a triple steak burger at Steak and Shake last night!
You can become addicted to the Garmin-I forced myself not to look at the watch today. I wanted to relax, not push or worry I wasn't fast enough. I do love the watch, though!!
You can run on the edge- we marathoners can run with injuries...but-you risk breaking down. It is a fine line. I am currently on the line now with the Achilles issue. I've been here before. I've broken down, and I've made it through. It is very important to stay humble.
So, just a fistful of miles to the best week yet! The goal for the race tomorrow is to string some really good mile splits together. I'd really like to get below 24 min.
Totals-6.23 miles/ 1:03:44/ 10:14's- route-"W" north-hilly.
Hope you have a great run, and weekend! Peace!
