Continuing the training
Wednesday, I did 5 x 1k @ 6:50 pace. It was a little tough, but not too hard. Today I decided to deviate a little from my program, and did 5 miles at a 8:05 pace. I did 3 in the middle at a 7:50 pace. I will probably taper a little more than my program calls for, because my knees seem a little more sore than usual. I will race the Frigid Five on Saturday. This is a hilly 5 mile race. I have run it twice before, and am not crazy about it, but I have done well there. Then I head straight to St. Louis for business. That's another reason for a little extra taper, it is cold there and probably the only option will be treadmill running. The marathon is one week from Sunday.
