A week to go...

Just one week till the Cleveland Marathon. I feel I can finish it. Not sure I will be near my orginal goal time but I still think I can finish it. I probably will start off going for it but will cut back if I have too. Right now I will be fine if I finish. I am going to use run/walk plan to survive it. The plan is sort of a 9/1 ratio. I plan to run to the mile markers, walk for a minute then run to next mile marker. But to make sure I hydrate properly, I will walk 30 seconds at the water stops if there in between mile markers, then another 30 seconds at the mile marker. I have done enough runs like this it shouldnt be a problem for me.

I did run 14 miles this morning and it well really well. Rick ran the whole way with me, Bob and Suzy came out and did 6.5 so it was a really fun run. This week just plan to do a few easy runs nothing hard or longer then 5 miles. Maybe shorter. Im looking forward to going to the expo next Friday.

Cleveland here I come..............

Good luck on your marathon. I use the run/walk/run method also, but I am not able to run a full mile before my walk break. :)
