2 days to go!

2 days left.

Tonight was a short workout - only 8km. That includes 2km of a warm-up, and 2 km of a cooldown, so the actual workout was only 4km in the middle.

The 4km was meant to be run as a tempo at marathon speed.

My overall pace for the whole 8km was 5:31/km. For the 4km tempo, my average pace was about 5:12, a bit faster than I expect to run at the marathon. Actually I ran the half marathon at an overall pace of 5:15, so I would expect my overall pace at the full marathon to be something like 5:25 or 5:30 (if not slower)...

Tomorrow is the concluding run of the training season.
