t-minus 7 days.....


today we went to run the final leg of the race which has the hills etc. i ran it with a buddy of mine who is running the 10 mile race (same say as tcm). we ran about 10.5 according to his nike watch which is more accurately calibrated than mine at the moment. just enough distance to really get warmed up. we averaged 9:30 pace (my watch said 10).

my average HR was 145, and the max was 159. not too shabby, i'm happy with that.

the knee felt a little tight and stiff for the first couple of miles but it seemed a little better after that.

i can't believe it is getting so close now! one week after tomorrow, wowza.

i sucked down zinc w/vitamin C pills like they were going out of style whenever i was about to fly on wed-fri. i think i made it through my travel without incident (minus one bad layover), however i'm exremely tired. must take naps this weekend.

thats all for now, i'll come back at ya later with more thoughts.

i'm feeling ready. as ready as i'm gonna be this time around anyway. rock on!
