Not a whole lot of training this week. There’s just a bunch of recovery and slow runs interspersed around one longer speed session. Marathon training has officially given way to marathon tapering. The big day for me is now les than two weeks away. Yikes. And please, please, please. No more 3 hour marathon talk. As if running in a crowd of 37,000+ in my hometown in front of family and friends, co-workers and neighbors, in a course that incorporates five boroughs, five bridges and 26.2 miles of tough and unrelenting ascents and descents wasn’t enough pressure for me to deal with.
Week #7 (10/13-10/19)
