I had one of my two go-to race breakfasts, opting for the double serving of oatmeal with brown sugar. The forecast had been for rain and a high of 10 celsius all week, so my weather expectations were low. But, I prepped by wearing a compression liner and a t-shirt and ended up not being too warm, though I could have managed with just the tee. The rain never materialized but the temperature forecast was correct and it was only about 8 celsius at 9am.
It’s been a long time since I ran my last marathon, and even longer since I ran a good one. I joined an injury prevention study and trained a little bit differently. I wonder whether it will pay off.
