After my 12-week Maffetone base build, and 4 weeks of 80/20 easy/hard running, I'll test this style of running in the Frostbite Half on Saturday.
It will be my 3rd time to run this race. The past two times, I ran 2:15 and 2:14. This time, I'd be fairly happy with 2:18, but maybe Maffetone Magic will surprise me!
I didn't taper well. I ran a 10.5 mile trail run last Saturday that was really, really tough. Then I walked about 3.5 on Sunday and took a yoga class on Monday. Not having taken yoga in months, that was not the smartest idea! My glutes and hips have been so sore!
I ran 3.5 mile runs on Tues/Wed and rested today. I may run two miles tomorrow with strides, or I may just rest.
I honestly have no idea what Saturday will hold for me, but I will run with perseverance.
The most important thing is that I feel happy and healthy.
