…and this morning’s strength training session was replaced by some time on my yoga mat. Ultimately, the goal of these last few days is to take it “easy.” This is the point in the schedule where I get to dial the work back and let myself recharge as I get ready for Sunday. So, for me, that means one last easy run tomorrow morning with lots of stretching & relaxation throughout the week.
As it stands, I’m looking at a mix of clouds and sun for Sunday’s race with a high of 45 degrees. (NOTE: this is also the point where I start to check the weather forecasts…a lot.) As running conditions go, that’s really not so bad. Ultimately, as long as it’s not raining, I’ll take it! 😉
All in all, I’m still excited, even as I’m busy at work trying to dot every “I” and cross every “T” before noon on Friday. Tendonitis notwithstanding, training has gone well, and I’m looking forward to seeing the results of all the work I’ve put in for the last 16 weeks.
