Case of Norovirus here. Haven't been this sick in a long time. Am at the point today where I'm considering trying to get a few easy miles in, but not sure. Only good thing about this is I've shed some lbs that needed to go (Xmas bulk combined with my subsequent layoff due to injury). Such a wonderful thing to be able to eat again though! Also had a nice 12 miler just Tuesday before I got sick. HR/effort dialing in again nicely. Am thinking a fall marathon might be my next goal. Should have plenty of time to get the base back and then sharpen.
GDawg, good for you! Easy to give that advice but very hard follow it. More free advice…if you are in taper, no need to race a 1/2 at all. If anything, you just want shorter MP sessions (5-7 miles?). Maybe just bin the race and go out for an easy run (if all feels good maybe go as far as 13, but keep it easy). Save the fast stuff for the next week midweek. But not knowing when your race is I'm just guessing you're 2-3 wks out. As others have indicated, ALL your hay is in the barn now. Nothing left to gain as I think it's physiologically impossible this close to the race (adaptations need 2-3 wks I think). Anyway, good luck on the test run. BTW, I show such concern because I really want to see how fast you can run 26.2 after all the great training
SJ, you are an animal. Great, great running!!
Gul, you are in fine form. I'd say that's a great run not far removed from your race (or even in peak form!)
OO, much respect on #100 Have fun and good luck on the LR.
Marrows, saw you are grounded w/a SF/SR. Sorry to hear and hope you survive the layoff. I just went through the same so feel for you. We'll have to wait for a fall marathon to shoot for another near photo finish?!
Really great stuff from everyone lately. Can't wait to see how the marathons go.
