Ugh, checked the forecast for the next six days. They're calling for lots of rain, although my runner's obsessive weather checking usually shows that things change all the time.
There's a lot I can't control, like the rain, but I starting to prep for the coming marathon. I gotta start gathering my gels and figure out what gear i'll need.
I have been thinking of running with my own Gatorade supply, or just enough so I have stores for the final half, when I'm more likely to start to feel dehydrated.
Now comes the big question: What pace? My 10K yesterday gave me a much needed confidence boost in my lactic threshold, so much so that I may reevaluate my goals. I was eyeing 3:30, but now I just can't help to see how things go if I chose a faster pace.
Whatever, I'll have a few more days to mull things over. Here's a tenative plan for the rest of the week, slightly adjusted from the Pfitzinger Douglas schedule.
Monday: 5 mile recovery
Wednesday: 7 miles w 2 at MP
Friday: Rest or 3 mile recovery with strides
Saturday: 2 miles
