|(I know weather.com stalking a week a way is pretty pointless, but I can't help it)|
|Mileage for the training cycle from dailymile.Don't ask me why the last week in Dec./first week in Jan. were split into two weeks.|
I knew it was going to be a tough run when I realized a portion of the course was going to run through some of the roads where my marathon training group met over the summer. I recruited my friend Dahlia from the city to come out and join me, and I knew it wasn't just me when she told me she would never complain about the hills in Central Park again!
But despite the tough course, I did feel stronger and faster than when I ran in the area over the summer. I was even able to pick it up for the last few miles at goal race pace.
|Finishing the 25K. Clearly I had no idea there was going to be a camera.|
Any last minute tips leading up to race day (or cures for race day anxiety)?
