This is the week before the Bali Marathon. It is also the week where I decided to drop down to do the 1/2 marathon. This decision is kind of a weight off my shoulders. My training has been very hit or miss the last couple of weeks. Since I am so much smarter this year, I rationalized that I am better off getting prepared for next month’s Voyageur Trail Marathon.
That being said, I ran a pair of 3 mile taper runs this week.
Tuesday evening, my run was at a nice, quick pace. The run was shorter and faster than a usual run.
Thursday, I ran during my lunch break. Hot temps, but it was nice to get done early. My work has dictated my running times and distances. It is nice to get done with my run before all the stresses of the day build up.
I plan to get 2 days of rest. The Bali Marathon starts at 5am on Sunday morning. The 1/2 Marathon starts at 5:30am. Look for a race report later on Sunday.
