    I only have 1 training day remaining on my 80-20 L1 marathon plan.

    Looking at my TP values (56/Fatigue 53/Fitness -4/Form) at 5pm on Friday – race day is Sunday 6:30 am; I am concerned that my Form value is too low.

    Should I skip tomorrow’s workout? It is only a 20′ foundation run but I feel like I could use more energy for good race prep. Our maybe it’s just apprehension because it is my first marathon. TIA.

    Meaurement problem.

    Is It a Real Problem or a Measurement Problem?

    Those numbers don’t mean much. The plan you’re following was designed in accordance with proven best practices in endurance training. Literally thousands of runners have completed it ahead of you and run successful marathons. You’re fine. One should never put more trust in abstract mathematical projections than one does in one’s own perceptions.
