Just out of curiosity, I plugged my 20 mile time into a few race predictors…
Running for Fitness: Puts me at a 3:00.47. Puts my training partner, who ran a 1:24.50 1/2 marathon at the same race, at a 2:58 :(.
Running times: Puts me at a 3:01.35 (again, pegs my training partner faster than that)
McMillan running: Puts me at a 2:59.35 (whew!)
So, what I take from this is that I need to be even more mentally focued on that 3 hour barrier than ever!! It’s taper time, but that means that I need to start doing everything right: sleeping enough, eating healthy, watching my weight a little more, keeping stress low. Eeeek!!
