Since I follow Sprinkles Cupcakes Bakery on Twitter, I received a free red velvet cupcake just for saying the code words "4 years" when I dropped by today. Fun, huh?! And delicious!
I came across a new book: Run: The Mind-Body Method of Running by Feel by Matt Fitzgerald. He writes that if you have a problem fading at mile 20 of the marathon, you might want to run back-to-back 20 milers, or a long run with 14-16 miles at marathon goal pace or even a 27-30 mile run before your goal marathon. Fitzgerald ran a marathon three weeks before his goal marathon at 94% effort and PR'ed three weeks later! Sounds great, but those are tough workouts!
And now I hear the rest of my cupcake calling my name! Gotta Run Now!
Do you treat yourself with something special at the end of a training week?
