Only five days to The Flying Pig Marathon. Actually, in five days, I'll already be back home. I am as ready as I'm going to be. I did not put in as much time as I should, and I neglected doing as much core work as I needed (I hope that doesn't bite me again), but I feel good, and want to test some different strategies. I am also going to try out running with music this week. Normally, I cannot listen to anything while running. I like the silence, and music messes up my cadence. The silence also allows me to tune out. But, I'm going to try something different. I borrowed an ipod shuffle, and have a short playlist of music that may be beneficial later on when my leg turnover/cadence starts to lag (I try to keep 180 steps/minute).
Oh, I am runner #3144. You can get text messages of my progress during the race by signing up here.
