There comes a time in every training program when I either know I’m ready for a race or I know I’m not. Just because I want to run the marathon in three hours and 10 minutes and have been training appropriately to reach that time, it doesn’t necessarily guarantee I will succeed. At two weeks away from race day, I’m comparing pace and time with distance and effort, and trying to judge how strong I have become and if that matches my goal. Call it overanalyzing, but I need to know my limits.
