So something happened on Saturday morning. You know the basics from my training recap post, but suffice to say, I ran a 20 miler on Saturday, approximately 2 weeks out from Chicago. I am going to taper HARD into the next two weeks, but after this run, I feel really good. If nothing else good comes out of this run, it was a confidence booster going into Chicago.
I had zero pace goals this time, just "go out and run. Run something that has a '2' in front of it." Those were Coach Jenn's instructions. So, to mix it up, I decided I was going to head out to Lunken, the site of the infamous (and one of my favorite training runs EVER!) Fleet Feet sponsored 20/12. So here is the route I ended up following.
This included the Taylor Southgate bridge (into Newport), the Veteran's Memorial Bridge (from Newport to Covington over the Licking River - I spied a bunch of crew clubs down on the river as I crossed!) and then the Clyde Wade Bailey Bridge back to Cincinnati.
And here are my splits (all of them).
