What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.
At the end of a training run there is no finisher medal – just a finisher. Sometimes, there isn’t even anyone there to high five.
But this is true arena where you become your goals – your workout is the goal.
Try and keep things fresh and dynamic tomorrow by trying different paces and running in different places.
30 minutes to 2 hours or aerobic running/walking will help you generate the endurance you will need to race. Start off slow, but make sure you spend 10-20 minutes at or near race pace by the end.
If you can include trails on your route, do so. Try and run passed a playground and get some body weight and hanging exercises done. More advanced athletes should do 30 burpees every 10 minutes.
