With 5 weeks left to the Illinois Half-marathon race, I'm feeling good about my fitness. I've managed to build a solid aerobic base, with a touch of speed, and I've thrown in a 5K trail race. I'll have a 10K race in 2 weeks. I'm backing off speed work for this week to rest and push the endurance side a bit more. More miles at a slower pace. Probably more hills too. Again, I'm balancing endurance, stamina, speed, and strength workouts. Balance is crucial to remain injury-free and improve race fitness.
