So far so good! I am no worse ( or better) than I was yesterday so that’s a good thing I guess! I am still downing extra water and vitamin C like a champ!
I am still obsessing about the weather too. I am hoping for the best, but I need to be prepared to get wet. This is making my race day outfit decision a tough one. I had planned on wearing shorts, throw away long sleeve and a tank underneath. Well….now this whole “48 and 50% chance of rain” threw me for a loop.
I went to this site on Runner’s World and you can conveniently enter in the predicted weather and they will tell you what to wear.
I am not sure about the vest. Usually my body is the one thing that gets extra warm and my arms freeze. I have also been reading a bunch of forums about running in the rain. One thing that I found REALLY helpful was pinning my bib to my pants. BRILLIANT. I was concerned about bib placement because if I ended up throwing away my top layer, then I would need my bib underneath. But then what if I didn’t throw away my top layer….. then you couldn’t see my bib and that means no photos. Uhhh. clearly I need proof that I finished marathon #3.
As of right now I am planning on everything in the above photo, minus the vest. I am sure that will change 10342 times, just like the forecast will.
Last night I ran a shorter-than-normal tempo run. I was told, for the main set, to run 4 sets of 3 minutes holding a 7:15-7:30 pace. I am given the option to run this on the treadmill to ensure I can keep the pace. I have been concerned about pacing myself lately. I do NOT want to go out to fast and die. So I hit the streets for this one.
I plan on still obsessively checking the weather and the forums on what to wear, but I wouldn’t mind your opinion too!
Please tell me….. what would you wear or in your past experiences what do you wish you wore?
