I’m putting up this post a day early as tomorrow we’ll be on the road to the Mid North Coast. That’s right – it’s all come down to this. I took it very easy this week for my taper. Sunday the Snook and I went for a 7 mile run (as mandated on my Galloway plan). I tried to run it as an actual rehearsal for the first quarter of the marathon, using my goal pace and intervals. It went pretty well. Tuesday I went out for a very easy 5K at lunchtime with my friend Raj. He and I went out again today for an even shorter run. And that’s it! No Spudds, nothing else. Just resting up, hydrating, and getting good sleep.
May 5: 11.02km
May 7: 5.05km
May 9: 4.28km
Total this week: 20.35km (12.7mi)
Total in 2011: 582.88km (364.3mi)
To meet my NEW goal of running 1200km in 2011, I should be at 530.8km. So I’ve still got a nice 50km cushion. I’m definitely going to eat into that in the coming weeks as I rest up… from the MARATHON I’M RUNNING ON SUNDAY.
I’m ready. I’m as ready as I’m ever going to be. Check Facebook and Twitter Sunday morning; I’ll set Runkeeper up to tweet the link to follow me. (Or just go here to my page.) As long as my 3G holds out, the run should update live as I go. LET’S DO THIS.
