This morning was uneventful, thankfully. No deer, bear, skunks, dogs or wolves to chase me...
Just a quick run out on Skyline and back. I stopped at UMD and did two 100 meter striders just to loosen up the legs.
Good Morning!! Boy, the next two days are going to be LONG!

Today would serve as the last day of any "up tempo" work until the race. I made my way to the UMD track and got a good warm up in before breaking into the workout. I was to do 4 X 1000 meters at "cruise interval" pace (~3:16 pace), followed by 3 X 200 meters. I must say, I felt a ton better after the workout than I did before. The legs responded very well to this type of stress and I should be ready for the next two easy days.
