What I was supposed to do last week: M=run 8mi, W=run5mi, F=yoga, Sa=run 5mi
And that is what I did. Here I am back on track just as I'm sliding into the home stretch. Monday's eight mile run was a little tough, but I was anemic which is probably at least part of the reason. But the five mile runs at this point hardly feel like work. Which is nice - it does mean that I've made visible progress whatever happens with the race. Yoga hurt, but that's what I get for not going in for two weeks.
I'm starting to get a little nervous about the race - I don't doubt I can finish but how long it will take me is totally up for grabs. Really, the primary goal is to finish. Realistically I think it will take me around 3:20 to do this (just over 15 minutes a mile). Ideally, I'd love to finish in less than three hours. But I'm trying really hard not to think about time.
