Sunday was my last long run. At first I had wanted to head over to Portland's east side to run part of RnR course to see what I am in for. But logistics just didn't line up. Instead, I made a point of hitting all my favorite trails near my house, in an easy 11 mile loop.
|Ready to go! Smiling cause it's my last long run until race day!|
|I trotted over to the nearby Power Line Park, I wonder why it's named that??|
|PLP took me right to the head of the Nature Center, where there's a mixture of boardwalks and paved paths. Lovely.|
|From the NC, I shot out right at the foot of the Nike campus. The bark chip paths felt good on my worn out legs.|
I sat in a cold bath (no ice) on my return. My fingers were crossed that my left hip flexor would calm down after the freezer treatment but it was painful for the rest of the day. Despite the pain, I felt good and confident. This has been a great training process and I have loved blogging the journey!
Race day strategies and goals coming soon.
Ladies and Gentleman, this lady is ready for her 13.1....
Do you race with a hydration belt? What's the pros? Cons?
Do you have paths to choose from around your house? Or are you stuck on the sidewalk?
