This week will be a bit slower in pace (on aggregate) as I focus a bit more on endurance and wrap up this final week of Pfitz training! I have my final 20 mile training run (maybe for the year?) and I have not quite decided how I will approach it yet. It's getting tough not to let my focus drift to Leadville, but I am confident the work I am doing now is preparing me for Leadville. And I am so late in training, that I can see this race coming together beautifully.
Before wrapping up this post, I have to mention my new marathon shoes, the Saucony Fastwitch. I tried them out Saturday having only worn them an aggregate of about 30 minutes before my MP run. They performed well. I think that anyone looking to get some of the benefits of a minimal shoe (light weight, very little heel-to-toe drop) while still maintaining some support should really consider them.
