Day 1 Week 17 – Getting Ready For Racing

8 mile easy pace + 6 strides, cool & 71 degree

Entering the last week of my Marathon Specific Phase, I feel recovered from the Saturday’s 21 miles run.  My body shows no sign of fatigue as if my empty”tank” from the long run has been replenished.  And the same goes with the 6 strides.

My recovery results from a combination of the weekend’s rest and this morning’s cool weather.  And capping the week (and the Phase), I will be running the Annapolis 10 miler this Sunday.  It will serve as a fitness check and a marathon predictor for me.

With the Erie Marathon one month out, my training will be physical as well as mental and emotional.  The goal is to have myself peak in all respects on marathon day.  The A-10 race is one example of getting myself into my racing mode.

What ritual(s) do you use to prepare yourself for the race?
