Another solid week is in the books. I’d like to think of it as the transition week before the real transition week!
My focus now, based on the guidance I’m following from this Runner’s World article, is to cut my mileage back by roughly 15 miles and drop my pace back on all runs, except for two miles at my goal race pace during one of my weekday runs. It is sooooo hard for me to drop my pace by 1 1/2 to 2 minutes per mile so I doubt that will realistically happen but I will aim for something near the 9 minute mile mark.
Nutrition wise, I’m aiming to keep my protein high, fat and carbs moderate. Lots and lots of water and not go crazy on either coffee or wine. A little is okay. A lot is not okay.
13 days to go but taking it all one day at a time.
Have a great week!
