Week Nineteen of my Erie Marathon training. Total miles ran this week: 28. weight is 147 pounds and resting heart rate 57 beats per minute. One week to go.
A key strategy in achieving marathon success is race pace. A good pace will keep the runner in control of and complete the race in time. Another strategy to improve one’s performance is the pre-race carb loading. Obviously many options to consider.
For me, I am keeping my thoughts focused on getting myself ready for the big race. With 700 plus miles under my belt, no more additional training will make a difference now.
Nevertheless, sharpening my mental edge, be prepared, and take care of my minivan are the things I can do.
Have a nice week.
