Mon 30 Mar - 9 miles race pace. I still have that nagging knot in my left shoulder. I tried auto-massage and rolling on a tennis ball but it persists. I know this will become a nagging pain in Boston so I will keep working on it every night. Today I did some chin ups and static stretches from the chin up bar to try and reach the muscle. It is a little better but not completely gone yet.
Tue 31 Mar - 6 miles race pace. Shoulder seems a little looser today. I'll keep working at it. I am starting to feel comfortable at race pace. The test is really whether I can sustain it for 3+ hours...I really get hot after just one hour at this pace, so a good hydration strategy will be critical during the marathon.
