So I did a 3.1 mile run on Saturday and another today. Just plugging away at the last few miles of taper, trying to keep the legs stretched out and not do anything silly (like try to get one last speed run in).
Saturday’s run was 3.1 miles in 25:20 and today’s was 3.1 miles in 27:30. No real drama with either run – just smooth and easy with little to no pace changes. Just running steady.
I might still do another short run tomorrow night to stretch out the legs one last time before getting on the plane dark and early Wednesday morning. That will really depend on how well packing goes today and tomorrow and how much time I need to spend running around to get last minute items.
At this point I am feeling good and looking forward to the races!
