Vancouver Marathon Training Week 18-C

Wednesday - 6K (4 mi) Wanted to practice running the last bit of the marathon, so I started from the finish line, ran over the bridge and past the brewery and then ran back toward the finish. Tried running at a fairly conservative pace until about the last mile, then stepped it up a notch and saved enough energy for a fast sprint to the finish the last 50 meters or so. I think in many ways running in my own backyard on Sunday will be quite a bonus - especially since most of the route I've run at one time or another (or hundreds of times for a few parts). I just wish my backyard was a bit flatter...
