The long weekend runs have been the most crucial part of training. I still feel that as long as I build the endurance I need, then the the adrenaline/drive/heart during the REAL race will push me faster. People have asked if I’m worried about not doing a long training run at marathon pace. I am not worried. This is a one time deal. I’m not giving this speed thing another shot… so it will be 3 hours and 11 minutes worth of running my heart out.
I’m on an intense BUILD until the beginning of November, and then I’ll start my taper. Ran a quick 10 this morning at 6:50 AM and did a loop of Central Park after work – 6 miles in 45 minutes. Then met Jules (in from England!!) and Co. at the Hudson Hotel!!
