(skipping my usual brutal leg workout.) Tomorrow I'll do weights (upper body - back/biceps) after 25-30 mins on the bike or elliptical. I feel pretty good, I've got the jitters but I'm really excited to see everyone and have a good time.
I'm doing shorter (30-45 minute workouts) but intense this week. Going to take Thursday (unless I get some time in the AM)/Friday off and probably will use the elimination race as my pre-marathon - get the lead out of your legs - workout since they're capped at 15 minutes. Now just to make it past the first lap. hah.

Who knows how I'm going to hit race day but hopefully my body is going to be feeling like making some people want to puke because that's one of my favorite past times.
