I was a little slow starting out this morning – got going late and the first lap was extra slow – wind was pretty bitter and made me wonder if needed to go add an extra layer of gear. It was only an issue though for the first mile or so – after that it was warm enough that the strong wind just slowed me down instead of freezing me.
I was practicing some marathon fueling strategy today and it seems like that should be pretty good – definitely helped keep me strong through the full run. I will tweak it a bit on my next long run next Sunday and lock that down for the Manitoba Marathon (4 week today!) from there.
Felt good through the full run – no issues with my right knee which has been bugging me here and there over the past week or so. Excellent. Just one more long mileage week to stay healthy through and then into taper.
