I ran on the island.  Warmed up for a mile did 3 at marathon pace which felt very easy.  Then cooled down for a mile.

Did 2 1/2 min repeats after a 5 min. warm up.  Repeated between marathon pace and easy jog.  Ran for 30 mins

I kicked off my carb loading for Saturday's race tonight with a 3 minute all out sprint.  It felt good.  Now I have to eat a lot of high gycemic foods for the next 24 hours.

It was a wet and windy day.  I finally met the legendary Andy B and he was kind enough to let me run with his group.  What an amazing, consistant runner he is.  We hit the half mark at 1:31:00 exactly as planned.  Now it was time to work the negative split, which I have failed to do in all 6 of my previous marthons.  I kept telling myself that today was the day I break 3 hours.  The last mile really hurt, but I was suprised to see my split at 7:00 exactly.  It felt like an eternity.  I ran a 3 minute negative split 1:28:00, my fastest half marthon ever!  I'm now officially a sub 3 marathoner.  I better go sign up for Boston and get me a good number.
