Please tell me this heaviness in my legs is going to go away by race day. (and my exhaustion I feel by end of the week) Oh man. I am fighting a cold...just trying to keep it from getting too bad, guess its better to get sick now then race week.

Ok, when do the legs start to feel better??? Still feeling a little slower than normal...
I hear ya...I'm second guessing everything I've done (which I'm pretty sure is normal considering I've never done this before and am so close) Hopefully the training will pay off but next week is the big taper week. Hope the legs come back then...is the intensity still supposed to be high the last week?
