I think what frustrates me most at this point (and I'm sure many of you will agree!) is that I finally figured out how to hydrate better, the best things to wear that don't chafe, what not to eat, what to listen to and feel so much more mentally prepared for this race than I ever did for the half marathon--and then it's the legs that quit!
I used to think undies didn't matter during running until I had such a horrible chafing episode after a 15 mile run. Let's just say I cried every time I had to go to the bathroom. I bought a pair of undies from UA and I won't go on long runs without them. DH also has long run undies. It's ridiculous how much gear you need to be comfy during a run.

Not sure what your long runs miles are, regardless, take this weekend off to allow the knees time to heal. If not done already, ice 2-3 times a day for 30 minutes. Compression sleeve may help the knees feel better through the day. If you feel the need, NSAIDs may be in order. If the knees do not improve by this time next week, see a doc.

Remember, it is much better to hit the race a little undertrained and healthy that well trained and injured.

With regard to chafing, yikes, there are so many places where this can happen and I usually find a new one annually.

Hang in there, you will be there soon.

Just finished my first 20 miler a few minutes ago, around 2:43. Man, that is a long run. Only other time I ran that far was the marathon in January. That was fun so it didn't seem as bad. 20 miles on a treadmill is not fun by any stretch.

So one more 20 in 2 weeks and the rest will be downhill.

Good luck to everyone this weekend with your runs. Stay healthy.

My toes are actually getting a bit beaten up from time to time in my sneakers during runs. I'm actually thinking about trying out the Invisible Shoe. It's about as close as I can get to running barefoot without actually running barefoot. Has anyone tried it? What were your thoughts? What are your opinions on various shoes?

My first thought would be to change up the shoe model or shoe size that you are wearing. Sounds like your shoes are too tight in the toe box.

I definitely wouldn't try to transition to something like that this close to race day! It takes a few months to transition from traditional to minimalist shoes if done properly.

Have you tried Infinji socks (toe socks)? I resisted for a long time, but am now a convert. It really eliminates toe-to-toe issues. If you are getting massive rubbing from on the outside of your foot you can try taping your foot there, or using thinner socks to see if that helps. Changing shoes would be possible, but only as a last resort.

I would like to finish in under 4:30. I won't be running near as fast on marathon Sunday. The half will probably see to that on Saturday.
My friend that I am running with is having knee problems so we will probably be pretty slow. He hung with me last year with my nightmare knee problems so I will do the same with him this year.

Wow! Nicely done! I'm jealous that you already got your long run in for the week. I have 18 miles scheduled for tomorrow morning. Not looking forward to that alarm going off. Hope you get to sleep in and rest up tomorrow!
