SIAR: But the central governor is the brain, no? It makes sense to me that the brain is in a very different condition in a race environment.
Here's an interesting article by Noakes on the subject:

NTS - Thanks for the weekend reading!
Hi, guys. A quick hello. I woke up sick but feel good enough to do my race tomorrow. Now I have a sick kitty (same one) at the vet, hoping I can pick her up and that is not serious. This week really sucks.
BBL, hopefully with good news.

Docket: I'm sorry about your kitty. Hope she is better. Glad you're feeling better, and I hope your race goes well.
All in for Boston
I didn't get my run in today. I packed shorts thinking it would be warmer at noon but it never got out of the 30s today with wind chill. Plus, I was being pulled in a million different directions and didn't realize it was lunchtime until 1pm anyway. Oh well.
SIAR, I'm a seeded runner for the CB. My 10-miler time is actually the fastest of my PRs. I've run high 1:08 twice. Which is why I was struggling so much with goal marathon pace this season. According to McMillan, that makes me a sub-3:15 marathoner, I think... Nice job on the workout.
Jack, I'm 200 and something. I can't believe I'm seeded that high. It looks like there are 3 different "mini" corrals in corral 1 - elite, the 100s and the 200s... I'm sorry about the sudden shock that you're not in the open category. I'm still a little in denial that I'm a master's runner.
D_R, Good luck tomorrow! You're a machine!

Hello dailies! Been buried under a rock (work) this week. Up to my eyeballs in overtime. Was planning to cutback miles this week anyway for a race on Sunday, but wasn't planning on cutting back quite so much. But, my plan didn't come with any cutback weeks built in and after a speedy 12 that felt easy today (I kept seeing 7:somethings on my garmin and made myself slow down over and over) I'm thinking a bit of a layoff might've been good. If nothing else it restores my faith in the taper making MP pace feel easier on race day.
Julia new plans/goals already- I like it!
Scott you are practically neighbors with my brother. Well, sort of. He lives in Mt. Airy- I remember driving through Frederick when visiting him. Seems like a very nice, pretty area.
Hilltopper good luck with the new running streak!
Jack I couldn't agree with you more about spring. Forecast here for my 5 mile race sunday is 32/flurries. Last year the same race was 70 degrees. *sigh*
swift sounds like you are recovering very nicely!
marco enjoy that last LR until boston. since i'm not getting a long run this week I'm going to do one more 20 next weekend then taper. Exciting to get into those final workouts- but honestly I'll miss my long runs!
jodi mini golf- sounds like a fun spring break!
rvd I'm a huge nerd when it comes to numbers on my garmin data, but I just cannot get myself interested in HR data. But, I totally understand the fun in looking at those numbers!
siar wow, just.. wow. nice paces on those workouts.
docket- hoping for better times to come for you & the kitty. sounds like you both could use a break.
