    good 2.3 mi

    Faster today. Moving at almost a normal walking speed. Legs still too tired & this run down feeling & cough are saying no running yet.

      just a few miles - that's what I always try to tell myself when I'm at the start line "Just a run with a few thousand of my friends!" Good luck Sunday!

      Just accept that it's obsession time from here to race day, no getting around it until the job's done. You'll have a great race, just keep it simple, everything in moderation. Yay, almost the big day. Can't wait to read your race report!

      Nice Job:

      Good idea! You need this. I won't say anything about pace because I don't want to contradict your plan, but it is certainly enjoyable to let go of pace for awhile. And, it definitely sounds like you're kicking butt with your recovery!

    I'm sick. Should have done more but all I did was get out for a walk. Also did some stretching and rolling. Hoping I'm feeling good by the weekend so I can get my long run in.

      got it done plenty close enough and don't forget the effort executing the workout improves fitness whether you hit goal exactly or not. Success again! It's not always fun, but still worth it.
