|Tapering is good...|
The show starts with a couple of email questions that I attempt to answer. They may apply to you as well:
- How can you get all of the episodes of the podcast to download?
- What, if anything, can be done about anterior shinsplints.
As I run in High Point, we actually cover part of the NC marathon course. It's been a while since I've run in this area, and the wind did not help, but the run turns out well as you will hear. During the run, I discuss how things went Thanksgiving, give you the survey results (go to the survey on the right to take this month's new one), and give you a training update. I also tell you what I am doing this week and what I plan to do the week of the half-marathon (only 9 days away as of this post).
We close things out for this 9 mile run with a 21 minute tempo session. One hint: it went well. The last 3 miles were 7:38, 7:38 and 8:00. The last one was not really even tempo. All of this tells me that the plan we have been working on over the last several months has been working. How will we do December 12th? I don't know. But I have prepared hard and now hope to rest well. I trust your running and possible race plans are going well also. And as always,
Thanks for sharing some of the road with me,
The 20 Minute Runner
