The last long run is in the books. Along with one of my teammates, I ran the Eastern States 20 miler on Sunday (March 30). It was initially looking like an epic day to run with 15mph steady winds, horizontal rains, and chilly temps, but as the race started the rains stopped and the winds turned to the northeast creating a sweet tail wind. Using it as a training run, and less a race, ran a steady 8:25 pace and felt great. Teammate, Jen, was able to hold that pace for 20 miles which was faster than her marathon pace. Great work Jen!
While we ran we chatted about marathon nutrition, gear, and interesting facts about the race.
The taper begins, which means a slight decrease in volume. No more 70 miles a week of running. We will cut back to 50's 🙂 but will maintain my speed and tempo running. Will also be running those notorious Newton hills in a week with teammates.
