2 weeks + 2 days to go!
Another 10 mile tempo today at 7:54/mile. 12 total miles with warmup. Today, the pace came easily. If anything, I had to constantly slow it down. It only felt challenging the last mile. So, that’s 20 miles at just under mgp in the past 3 days. I feel like I am cramming for a test, trying to get comfortable at this pace before I start to taper. Today was exactly what I needed. It was humid, and dark, and I was alone and sleepy, but I still hit it. I can do this.
Oh, those are my new marathon shoes in the background! They perfectly match my race singlet, nail polish, and warm-up jacket. Yes, I have race nail polish, don’t you? Oh, they feel great too. But, really, the color just makes me happy. Details, details.
