Three weeks to go, and I'm feelin' good!
On Saturday, I hit the treadmill for a nine-mile speed workout. I wanted to do more, but I figured that I should end the run feeling like I could run more instead of exhausting myself. On Sunday, I went out for a four-miler. Again, I wanted to run more but thought it would be best to take it easy and avoid injuring myself.
This week will probably be the hardest of this training cycle. I don't see a need to do a full taper, but I don't want to run much the week before the race.
Here's the plan:
Monday: Stretching. foam rolling
Tuesday: 4 miles (easy)
Wednesday: Tempo Run
Thursday: 5 miles
Friday: 3 miles
Sunday: 14 miles
