As I write this I have under a week to go until I toe the line for my Q marathon.
Week 19 training went as much as I expected except for the lack of yoga due to my shoulder problem. An easy week was planned and that was what I had.
This close to a race I always get paranoid about my general health. I wrap up well, stay away from long off road runs and limit time on the bike.
Running stats 14 miles run with 700 feet of climbing.
Biked 46 miles with 2600 feet of climbing.
Those of you following this blog for Quebec will notice that my training is not of the high mileage type. This is mainly for two reasons:
1. To limit injury and overuse from runs longer than 2 hours.
2. With over 70 marathons and ultras to my credit I feel that intensity is the key.
