So yes, I got sick and 4 quality days became 4 days of jogging. In the end, it was probably a blessing. I felt amazing on my long run this morning and had two really good sections of tempo.
Today was the Boardtown runners reunion, so Micah, David and I were joined by Tiffany for most of the run which was awesome. There was pop in my stride today and I haven't felt this good on a long run in a few weeks. Obviously, this is because the last few days have been recovery, but all my training leading up until this point has been fantastic.
Going into Montreal, I know that I am capable of a good time. If it happens, great! If not, there will be another race later this year to try for a big PR. I am looking forward to the next few weeks of racing, a good summer, and then prepping for a fall marathon...possibly Chicago Marathon? :)
We will see.
