Pre-race routine:

Painted the deck/drank some beer and ate burgers the day before, so wasn't too hungry this morning. Ate 60cal of arrowroot cookies.

Event warmup:

Need to get 27k today so jogged 2k before race
  • 1h 36m 51s
  • 21.1 kms
  • 04m 35s  min/km

I'm in week 5 of Pfitz 50/18, and chose to take no days off for this race, including 8k run on Sat. In hindsight probably not a great idea, but marathon is A race.

What would you do differently?:

Maybe taper for 3 days? It really sucked running that beat.

Post race
Warm down:

Ran another 2K then found wife/kids and stuck around for kids race!!

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Beat from training sched.

Event comments:

Hard to taper for any races without screwing the marathon plan. 2 weeks from now is even worse - 29k run on the same day as my mud hero obstacle race. Want to taper a few days, but don't want to miss training targets.
