I had six miles on the schedule today, and six miles tomorrow. I really want to take two days off in a row before racing, so I combined them for an 11.5 mile easy run, today. I ate with free abandon before I went out for the run, and my GI tract made me pay. I was pretty uncomfortable the entire run. For recovery I got in the spa & spent about 30 minutes compressing. I have a medical unit that I got off of eBay. I’m out of my recovery drink, so I had a glass of milk when I got in. I’m considering trying Fluid recovery instead of Physiophyx, because it is cheaper, but I’m not quite ready to make the purchase.
I haven't decided how I want to handle the race. I could go all out and just see what I have. The disadvantage to that is that it will effect my training next week. Another option is to run it at fast MP, that would be great training, but I would miss out on the fun of racing. I'm not sure what I'm going to do.
