Two weeks, well 13 days actually, until race day. I wish I could say that the last two weeks were as encouraging as the previous, but they were pretty uneventful from a training standpoint. Since my last post I was to have a week of rest (only 12 hours of training) with a short distance race simulation on the weekend, then last week the volume was supposed to increse again before I made my final two week taper to IMAZ, but on Thursday I got sick. This pretty much wiped out my last 4 days of training. Hopefully this will work out to be a positive rather than a negative. Hopefully the extra rest will allow me to come back strong this week and get in one more solid week just to reconfirm to myself that I can race well. For now, I have to go blow my nose.
