Rest or Rust

Terry Sullivan /

We are a little less than 2 weeks out and you have a few training runs left. So the question becomes, are they necessary if you are nursing an injury. In my opinion when dealing with an injury it is always better to err on the side of caution. The last couple training runs are not going to make you go from a 2:30 half to a 2:00 half but they may make you go to a DNF or worse a DNS. Did not finish and did not start are hard to take after months of training. So take it easy and do some alternate cardio that does not aggravate the injury. Bike, walk, swim or just do some upper body strengthening in the long run you will be happy you did!

See you all race day!
