Left knee is MUCH better today.  In fact I walked around before I remembered it was hurting ;o).  Lateral left foot is bruised.  Yep, you can see it now.  Shoes are not my friend!  Flip-flops!

Training notes

Race Day


5' wu and cd. Marathon race. Break the race into 3 parts. First 10 miles are moderate effort, next 10 miles are up a notch on the effort level, and the last 10k are hard. Pace yourself, and think nutrition!! Especially when you are done.


  • Health data: Sleep: 4
  • 1h 11m 29s
  • 6.26 miles
  • 11m 25s /Mi

One down, marathon to go!

32*F start, but no wind.  NICE!

Packet pickup!

Brrrrr!  So much for the high of 50*F today.

  • 34m 27s
  • 2.90 miles
  • 11m 53s /Mi

Run Speed
10' wu. 10' cd. 8-12 x 15" pick-ups, (strides) - about as fast as 5k pace - quick NOT all out -with FULL recovery, these are meant to be very fast. Stretch when done and add in Core 1, 2 or 3.

That's it, DONE! Nothing to do now but wait...

Only ran 8 strides due to running the easy 10K on Sat.
