Sofa to 1/2 Marathon in 65 Days Final Post

It's race week.  It's time to rest the legs and prepare for Saturday's race.  If you feel like you haven't gotten in enough training runs or if your legs feel great - stay off of them.  You can't cram for a race like you crammed for a test in school.
From Stephen Covey:  
"Can you imagine "cramming" on the farm? Can you imagine forgetting to plant in the spring, flaking out all summer, and hitting it hard in the fall--ripping the soil up, throwing in the seeds, watering, cultivating--and expecting to get a bountiful harvest overnight?Cramming doesn't work in a natural system. That's the fundamental difference between a social and natural system. A social system is based on values; a natural system is based on principles. In the short term, cramming may appear to work in a social system. You can go for the "quick fixes" and techniques with apparent success. But in the long run they just don't work."
