I only ran 7.5 on Thursday and 7 today. I am hoping to head into the 3k fresh, but I don't feel as great as I thought I'd feel. Although the weather is apparently warming, it is still mid-20s when I hit the streets at 7am. I think this has something to do with it. Also, my lower left leg has also been bothersome, but this isn't affecting might fitness. I guess I just feel tight and stiff. I tend to race well, so I have that on my side. Either way, I've run less this week so I should be plenty ready for a 9:00 race. I will shuffle an easy jog tomorrow morning...and then attack.
My plan: start out a tad reserved and average 34.5s...hit 1600m in 4:36...hold on for dear life...kick myself if I fall asleep or have Wiggy yell at me...kick with 600m to go...finish in 8:36...dry heave.
