Four Days to Go

Happy Wednesday and time for one last training run. I’ve got 10km on the schedule for tonight, hopefully at race pace.

That means I need to decide what race pace actually is. My personal best marathon is a 3:53:59, but I think based on my training this year that I can maybe take a run at that. At Around the Bay, I ran 5:06/km over 30km. Hmmm.

A 3:45 marathon is 5:20/km and a 3:50 is about 5:27/km. With that in mind, I’ll probably run about 5:20/km for my last run tonight.

We’ll see what race day brings. Only at the end of the race will I really get a sense of what I’ve done this year to improve and what my race pace is.
