This was it. The final "long" weekend run. Taper down is officially over for the long runs.
This felt weird and special at the same time. Anxiety and nerves start to set in thinking of the big dance next week (i.e the actual Race day). The hardest part now is going to be able to keep the legs injury free and show up at the race.
Months of training and all that running and it's come down to this.
The run was not bad at all, decent weather though it was a bit warm by the time we started. I did notice that having a conversation (which seemed unreal at some point) was possible and made the miles fly.
This was my last opportunity to experiment with carrying things on actual race day. I wanted to make sure it would be convenient to keep the phone along and keep some of the electrolyte packs as well. Logistically it somewhat worked out but I don't think I'll be making any changes to my routine and gear at this point. It's GAME ON now.
