With 16 days, 10 hours, 32 minutes to go before the marathon, I’ve reached a point where I feel like I’m in fairly good shape – for a half marathon. On my long runs I’ve typically been feeling strong through 10, then things start to wear down around 12-13, then fatigue hits hard in the mid-teens. Most training programs, including the one that I’ve been (loosely) following, provide for getting at least one 20-miler in before the big day. My longest has been 16. With only 2 training weeks left, there’s not enough recovery time left to get one in now. Oh well. At least I won’t have to worry about being overtrained.
One foot in front of the other….
