Just six more days! I’m getting a little nervous but I know in my head that I’m well prepared for the race.
I ran in my bright yellow Mizuno’s again. Like yesterday they felt great again. I’m leaning towards using these for the marathon. It’s unlikely that I’ll wear my old sneakers.
Today an easy 3 mile run was scheduled. I ran the 3.2 mile loop in 26:46. I tried to go slow but that’s actually an 8:22 average pace! Sheesh! I didn’t even feel very good during the run. I don’t think things would have gone well had I done a long run today.
I have a few things to do before Sunday. I need to change the music on my mp3 player and cut a straw to the proper length for the run. I tested the straw technique at the Madd Dash and it worked very well except that the straw was a little too short.
