It is now so close to the race that I am now in the “sweet spot” – when any distance I am going to run is a matter of mind over matter. That is, I’ve already run for 85 minutes (10 miles), so 40 minutes is nothing. Marathoning for Mortals winds you down a bit in the two weeks before the race, so as not to tire you out. It worked in February, and I can feel it working now. Still getting used to my new shoes, but they feel pretty good. My old ones, which I wore at least a year too long, have started giving me a blister, so they are officially retired. I stuck with Asics though, and I love them so far.
the sweet spot
On Tuesday, I ran 40 minutes on the treadmill at work at 6.6 mph (and did the same thing today). On Wednesday, I used the elliptical at work for 30 minutes. Another 30 minutes of cross training tomorrow and a 5 mile run on Sunday, and Week 13 is done.
