Less than a week to go! Full taper mode now which is nice! I am already feeling more like my energetic self.
Monday- 7 miles at lunch 8:13 pace, probably a little quick for a recovery run but was having fun and felt good
Tuesday- 8 miles with 8*25 second strides with Daisy at lunch
Wednesday- A little over 6 miles at lunch. Attempted a track effort in the flats but blew up a bit mentally a little over half way through it and called it a day. No need to pressure myself this late in the game.
Thursday- A little over 5 miles with the DOT group. Downtown was crazy with Browns fans everywhere.
Friday- A little over 5 miles with 10*25 second strides
Saturday- 13 miles 8:00 pace, last 3 at marathon pace, was a little quick 7:11, 7:06, 7:05 but in the ball park and it felt good. Just have to be careful at Richmond not to get complacent and not to push too hard early on
Sunday- Car died so I had to do a bit over 5 on my own
50 miles for the week
