The Philly marathon & half marathon is in 2 days. I'm not looking to break any records in the half, just have a nice run with a bunch of other runners, take some pictures and enjoy the day. This week I ran 2 7-milers, one at moderate pace and one with 4 x 800 at goal pace. They both went well. Yesterday I did 6 miles and it was brutal. I took off today and might take off tomorrow. My legs have been tired, and my knees have been hurting too! And I'm coming off of a bad sinus infection or cold. I had to take Nick to the doctor today and he has ear infections in both of his ears - bad ones! I'm pretty sure I've had the same thing going on in my ears too, they have been full of pressure and not comfortable. I'm ready to finish this race but I don't think it will be a PR (sub 1:53 is my PR at this time). I have not ran a half marathon or marathon fully trained at my fastest race pace, only shorter races (10 mile, 5k and 10k). One of these days I will train hard for a full and half and get the times I should be getting (I think around 1:45 and 3:50ish). Have a great weekend and thank you for reading!
