I am exactly one week away from my next marathon. In a week from today I will run the Prince Edward County marathon in Picton, Ont. I only have three runs left in my training schedule. It is almost hard to believe it is almost race day.
My main goal for this marathon is to improve on my time from my last marathon, this year’s Ottawa marathon (3:32). You may remember from one of my earlier posts that the one problem I ran into during the Ottawa marathon was cramping in my calf muscles. In order to address this I added more mileage to my training for PEC, including two weeks of more than 100 km and 415 km in August alone.
As I head into my final week of preparation I feel confident in the training I have done over the summer. I will be running an easy run on Tuesday, a tempo run on Wednesday and another easy run on Friday before I head to the start line next Sunday.
