mid-day three

since my mileage is so low for part of this week i can treat myself to running during lunch. today was another short and easy 3 miles, and i was definitely hungry by the time i got back home!

nothing special about the run although my hr was unusually high. it certainly didn't feel like i was exerting that much effort but it kept reading 174 or so. i drink any water all morning (i know, a running cardinal sin) and only ate a packet of oatmeal for breakfast, so i'm not sure if my lack of nutrition contributed to the high hr.

i'm getting a little nervous about the race - mostly over having to pr by 30 minutes in order to make it to thanksgiving dinner #1 on time. you better believe i will be eating multiple dinners post-race on thursday!

going to see the chiropractor after work to get one last adjustment in before the marathon, and then it's just a 2-mile run, a 2-hour drive, and a few hours of sleep before the marathon.

am run: 3.1 miles, 27:45 (8:57 avg pace), avg/max hr (163/195)

  1. Lindsay, I just wanted to wish you the best of luck on Thursday. Just try to enjoy it and don't constantly worry about your time. Hopefully everything will just "mesh" and it'll be an awesome run day!
