I ran the Manitoba Marathon last Sunday. I achieved a 30 minute PB, coming in with a time of 4:01:11. Finishing was bittersweet, as I was aiming for 3:45, but at least with a 4:01 it's still a personal best.
It hasn't been quite a week yet, and I'm cutting my recovery period short. I'm getting anxious about my 50 mile race that's less than a month away. I ran 7 miles yesterday and 4.5 today, with planned back-to-back long runs Saturday and Sunday. My first two runs felt "ok", but the going was a bit slower than normal. I'll have to see what comes of this weekend, and if I can continue pushing myself.
