No citizen has a right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training, what a disgrace it is for a man to grow old without ever seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable of - Plato

2.5 easy w/ 3 strides (6:35 pace, nice)

Final review - pace was easy today. Made sure of that. Highest the heart rate got was 130, even on the strides which were ~5:00 pace. Made sure to focus on breathing and form and staying relaxed. Tried a new technique called "centering" which felt good. Studied up on racing mentality and stuff like that. Left calf was a bit tight, I'll make sure to roll that out.

Ever since late may I've been training hard, and now comes the time to prove that. My body is in good shape, and that combined with the race mentality that I'm going to collapse before I give up, and I think I can do 26:20. No, I KNOW I can. So, if I could stay in all my loyal readers thoughts/prayers, it would mean a lot.

I'd just like to thank everyone that helped get me to this points . No matter what happens in the arboretum tomorrow, I'm giving everything I have for you guys.
