Only six day to go until the marathon. I reported that I did 5 miles walking on Saturday, then ran the final mile of practice. Yesterday I did the PT exercises that I haven’t done for too long. It was a good workout, but I felt the fact that I missed a few workouts. Tonight I walked 4 miles, including the CA Incline, then ran 1.25 miles. I was a little bit under a ten minute per mile pace. It feels like I am just getting warmed up when I have to stop! The knee feels pretty good, a little stiff, but I think that’s due to not running at all for so long. It feels better than it did last summer when all these problems started!
I’m getting nervous about the race! I am way better prepared than I was when I tried to walk the marathon 7 (?) years ago, but not as prepared as I was last year. I’ll have to figure out how much I can run and how much I want to walk. Whatever I do, I now I’ll have lots of support out there!
