  1. RUN
    great Shake out 2.26 mi 00:33 14:29 pace

    A very slow run finishing with some 30 second accelerators. Officially the last run before race day. The accelerators felt fantastic! My legs were so ready to run fast. Loved it.4 sleeps!

  2. VELO
    great Commute home 3 km

    it's not far but it was something!

  3. VELO
    great Commute 3 km

    I know I should commute to work every day seeing as it is so close but after school kids activities sometimes derail that. Nice to be able to ride during taper week to keep the crazies at bay.

  4. RUN
    great Easy effort 5 mi 01:00 12:00 pace

    Music free Monday. Enjoyed my easy effort with a pick up at the end of each mile. Taper week.... T-7

  5. RUN
    great T -8 8 mi 01:28 11:02 pace

    Perfect morning for a run. I hope race day is this good. Getting nervous and excited.

  6. RUN
    great Easy effort 4.68 mi 00:58 12:24 pace

    Doing the taper thing.... Happy days.

  7. RUN
    great Recovery Run/Walk 6.58 km 01:00 14:40 pace

    Nice little jaunt in the fog.

  8. RUN
    great Easy effort with pick ups 10.95 km 01:20 11:45 pace

    Love running in the fog early in the morning. Only issue is that it brings on my asthma - cant win them all. Less than two weeks to race day!!

      bummer 'bout the asthma, but nice to have some fog. i enjoy it too although, with the stellar views i have here in the mountains, I'm glad we don't have lots of fog!

  9. RUN
    great Short long run 12.03 mi 02:17 11:22 pace

    Two weeks to go until race day! Enjoyed a shorter long run this morning on a perfect autumn morning.

  10. RUN
    great Build Engine Run 6 mi 01:23 13:53 pace

    Very chilly out there this morning although lovely bit of sunshine. Enjoyed my time immensely.

  11. RUN
    great Wednesday trot 8 km 01:00 12:07 pace

    Easy effort <140 with pick ups. Have hurt my back so it was a little tough. Will see the physio tomorrow to get it sorted.

  12. RUN
    great Recovery Run 6.83 km 01:00 14:08 pace

    Small improvements. Went further than previous runs in the hour allocated to <120bpm for recovery.It all adds up.

  13. RUN
    great Week 18 enhanced anaerobic th... 10.3 km 01:05 10:06 pace

    Had a ball. Got my pace down to 4:44min/km at one point. Love and hate a bit of speedwork. :-)

  14. RUN
    great Long Run (TOF) 32 km 04:05 12:20 pace

    Got that from Tomaz L. Time on Feet. Plan was four hours and 20 miles. Due to symptoms of over training I did it easy effort with some pick ups. Three weeks to the marathon and I am getting excited... read more

  15. RUN
    good Build Engine Run 10.94 km 01:30 13:14 pace

    Felt good to start and then had some tummy troubles so had to finish sooner than I wanted. :-( Best to get things sorted before tomorrow's long run. (<130)

  16. RUN
    great Easy effort with pick ups 10.45 km 01:15 11:33 pace

    The cooler mornings mean a faster pace at <140. The tweaks my coach made to my plan are really working. I am feeling so much better and enjoying my running. Big weekend coming up and then my las... read more

      I have come to love the taper... crazy I know! How many weeks until your race day??

      Still something like 8 weeks. I'll do a 3 week taper so that means 5 more weeks of slowly building. It's all about that marathon pace, so my workouts will gradually converge there over the next month and a bit. Fun!

    great Recovery Run 6.84 km 01:00 14:07 pace

    Apparently according to Strava my <120 bpm time is getting faster. Nice!

  18. RUN
    great Easy effort with pick ups 6.2 mi 01:20 12:54 pace

    Great start to the week. Just me and my footfalls in the dark. Week 17 of 20 weeks. Cant believe I am just less than four weeks out from the marathon. Happy days.

  19. RUN
    good Short long run 19.3 km 02:31 12:35 pace

    Coach thinks I might be suffering over training effects. I think she could be right. Four weeks out we have a plan to get my ready to race on race day. Nice easy effort run this morning. Had a grea... read more

      You've had a couple of big weeks so i'm not surprised. Great to identify it. I'm sure you're doing this already and your coach sounds awesome, but make sure you get lots of sleep and be really aware of your diet. Everyone talks about the importance of protein for recovery, but really, when you're pushing the distance it's carbs you burn through and what needs to be replaced for the next runs. So carbs, then protein + sleep + rolling, so you're properly refuelled and recovered.

  20. RUN
    blah Build Engine Run/Walk 10.75 km 01:40 14:58 pace

    Things arent going so well. My sub 130 run turned into a walk as my HR kept spiking. Very disappointed. Will go to bed early and hope tomorrow's long run is more of a success.....

      2 longies in a row will be a challenge for sure. Curious to see how your HR does on the 2nd one.

      Remember that ultimately what's important is not your ability to hold a low HR, but to run 42.2 in your target time. I've often had it where i repeatedly missed my planned runs and would privately be worried. But missing targets didn't mean i wasn't getting stronger and fitter. The runner you've build yourself into over the past year+ is capable of amazing things that you previously wouldn't have been able to do. As long as your taper goes well you'll be all set up to have an awesome race. :)
