I intend to hit the gym and get back onto the dreaded treadmill and more lower body stretches instead of accumulating mileage. Saturday long run will still happen but would definitely scale back in pace.
The Around The Bay 30K race in Hamilton is also in a matter of 3 to 4 weeks so the upcoming month of March is pretty much time to wrap the hard work up and transitioning into tapering mode. This means being careful with my running mileage, the pace involved, and gradually switching my training runners (Gel Nimbus) back and forth with my race shoe (Adidas Boston Boost) in anticipation of the actual race day.
Hopefully this week will be kind to me and mostly body pain free...
