|Subject: ||RE: "Official" LetsRun.com Olympic Marathon Trials Thread|
I ran a marathon in which every step of the way past 8 miles I thought my calf was going to cramp and snap when I upped the pace to my typical race pace. I did not push my luck and I ran "slightly under redline".
[That is the point, she let 3 others stay in contention way too long and let it become a test of speed. She essentially left it to chance at the end.
She would have tipped the odds in her favor by keeping the pace honest from the start and grinding away those 5:20'something splits way earlier.
If you believe you are the fittest you should make the race about fitness. If someone hangs around, more power to them. If you run less than your best and get beat it is on you and your 'coaches'
