I did it! I SERIOUSLY can't believe it. 20 whole miles. My last high mileage run before the actual race. I was pleased with how well it went! I made sure to get a good amount of carbs Friday night, got a good nights rest, and got in a good breakfast. It was snowing here in Utah on Saturday morning, so I had to do it on the treadmill again. I sure hope this weather gets a little nicer because I'd like to get some of my final runs in outside, and I'd REALLY like to have it a little warmer on marathon day. I was surprised at how great I felt throughout the run. It wasn't until the last two miles that my knees started to feel tired, even still it wasn't too bad. I just kept telling myself that this was my last lengthy run, and that really helped! After 3 hours 17 minutes of straight running I was glad to be done though...believe me. I found out this past week that my mom AND dad are going to be here for race day! I couldn't be happier about that. :)
This next week I start to taper down. This Saturday's run is only an 8 miler...CAKE.
Two Saturday's from now? RACE DAY!!
