Back in March, Flotrack was fortunate enough to ride along as Kara Goucher ran her final big workout prior to today's Boston Marathon. The 20-mile run took place five days after winning the Lisbon half marathon in Portugal.
The workout was meant to simulate the Boston Marathon. Kara alternated running on the track several miles and then onto the 1.75 mile loop around the Nike Campus.
Weather conditions were good despite light rain towards the end.
After the 20m run was finished, Kara did light work inside the pool, followed by an ice bath.
Pacers in this video were Arlan Bowman, a local runner in Beaverton who has paced the Oregon project for several years and Julius Achon a Ugandan middle distance runner who still owns the NCAA 800m record (1:44.5).
