6:00 AM: 30-minute run. Some of it was fast, but most of it was slow.
I am doing a really deep taper/rest week. Compared to the 2-1/2 hour run I was doing two weeks ago, this mornings 30-minute run was just a warm-up.
I will be doing three races in the next 5 weeks. Combined they will be about the equivalent of an Ironman. My sprint this week will be about as long as the swim leg of an Ironman. The 70.3 race that I do three weeks after that will be about as long as the bike leg of an Ironman and the Marathon that I do two weeks after that will round out the run leg of the Ironman.
3.33 mile run this afternoon in celebration of my 33rd birthday. Low 90s with low humidity. Held my 70.3 race pace with a good bit of elevation and Upper Z2 HR. Hopefully Augusta will offer milder weather this year...not holding my breath for that.
