Fox River Trail

8 Miles 54:35 6:49 average
157 HR average
8:45 am) low 20's sunny
Okay run. HR seemed to be running a little high.
Maybe it's from all the turkey I ate. I don't
think so I actually did not gain any weight.
I'm taking off tomorrow and doing a few more
short runs before taking off Thursday and Friday.
I would run Thursday but I will be in the van all
day. Only 1 week to go. I will be glad to get this
one done. I'm a bit nervous about it. I don't think my
training has been all that good for it. But on race day
I always seem to perform well so I hope that continues.
My goal is still 2:49 but I would be happy with anything
under 3:00. Plan is to run first half at 1:24-1:25 and
try to hold on for the second half. I just checked the
forcast it shows a low of 36 and a high of 57. That's
good if that holds up.

Yup - just go for it ... be mindless in the first half to that 85 and then start to race ...
