My original plan was to hit a trail to test my gears and my vest setup for the Pinhoti 100 race next week. But I decided to run in the city, I had so many things to do that I could not afford any traveling. So I went out and did a loop Astoria – Randall Island – Upper East Side – Astoria. I put all the gears and fuel that I would keep in the vest the whole race and tried to run it with my comfortable pace for the race. All worked swell, except when I was on the Queensbridge, I started to chase bikes on the ascent. I did not know what I was thinking. So I still needed to work on my patience.
Overall, I believe I was ready, despite I did not train as much as I wanted to. I had been struggling with my injuries since I got back from France, and was afraid to make it worse. I missed one of my long run and an overnight run in my training logs.
