Skipped the morning run to sleep in. I was going to go short, but it was 21 degrees...so I bailed. Going harder at lunch then maybe after work with Justin.
Conference call today with the nutritionist who is on the Nutrition Panel this weekend at the PowerBar booth...this is going to be fun! The panel discussion takes place at 11:30am on Saturday and Sunday...stop by to say hi or heckle me!
Went out for my last tempo run before the Boston Marathon. Ate a PowerBar Fruit EnergyBlend then out to the the run. Ran 1 mile easy with Dan S. then into my 6 mile tempo. I ran along the greenbelt to Bill's Bike and Run and stopped in for a PowerBar gel (testing my GI track for compatability for the race). Splits: 5:54, 6:04, 6:00, 5:57, 6:02, 6:11 (slowed down on purpose) (right at 6:00 AP). 0.25M cooldown for 7.25 miles in 45:45 (6:18 AP). Everything felt good and easy, including my hip (it may have been older shoes which I have retired). (Mirage Red)
