DD, you felt like this before the last race too! No worries, you'll be good on the day. You still have several days to get that spring back. And lots of eating to do too! Really hoping the throat is just a random thing and to the onset of a sinus infection. Rest up, stay well, and don't be _______!.
Welcome Zicksi101. Lots of knowledgeable folk here. Pull up a chair.
Legs nearly DOMS free today. Think I'll wait till this weekend to test the waters on an easy jog.
Leslie, yes, just under LT. Ideally, you get this effort level mastered by doing tons of miles at it and supposedly on race day you can maintain for the full 26.2. Which I now know can work. The coach (HADD aka Walsh) that came up with this plan said that if you are fully trained, your subLT can be as high as ~87% of your maxHR. That's my goal now is to see if I can keep raising it up from the current 80-82% range.
OO, like the bold statement. Good luck chasing it down!
Gul, seems you are back to your normal ways. How is the body feeling?
Here DOMS is nearly gone. Might sneak out for a few miles tomorrow.
It's been nice taking a break from running this week, but I'm kind of going stir crazy too. And calming that by eating waaaaaay too much food! Not getting on the scale anytime soon...
