Race day is a week from today, which means we're in the final week of preparation. For a challenging 10-mile course, that means we wind it down this week.
At this point, you've either fully prepared for the race or you haven't. Nothing you do now--whether it's distance or hills or speed work--is going to make a difference on race day. Your body simply doesn't have the time to rebuild after a tough workout and be ready for next Sunday.
So Tuesday night we'll take it easy. We'll meet at the usual spot in Washington Park for two laps around the park. We'll go the easy way; from the shelter, we'll go down the hill toward the lower duck ponds and then clockwise around the park.
Anyone getting together Thursday to run should keep it under 4 miles.
Packet pickup will be 4-7 pm Friday at the SportsCare facility at Chatham Road and West Washington.
Leading the Frost Toes this year has been a real hoot. Thanks for participating!
