Now I’m ready to start

September 11, 2010

Screen shots from my virtual course tour using Google maps street view:

I didn’t finish the whole tour, it was too tedious.  I’m going to drive/bike the course on Monday to get familiar.

This morning Gillis and I did our last 30km run before the marathon.  We did some pace work and averaged a little faster than marathon pace.  It was really easy to hit 3:04/km today with the cooler temps and a reduced work load. 

This past Tuesday we did mile repeats on our road loop.  They went really well and I actually feel that I’m in decent 10km shape right now.  Before my first two marathons I never felt I was in good 10km shape and I think this will really help me in Toronto in two weeks time.

    Would you mind providing specifics of that mile work-out.

    We did the miles on a road loop that has a net elevation drop and also has a small hill. We did 5 of them with 5 minutes rest and I averaged 4:23. The first one was a couple of seconds slower because a driver decided to not budge and head right for us. We averaged a few seconds faster than 5 weeks ago and I’m doing these 9 seconds faster than a year ago.
