I feel like I am peaking at the right time, but I have a tender spot on my left shin (nothing I couldn't run through), so I'm being careful this week.

My shin feels perfect this morning as far as walking and elliptical go. I did not run on it though, thinking another couple days rest would do it some good.  I'll stick with cross training again tomorrow and then try it out for a run on Saturday.

Another day of cross training

1 hour elliptical

I showered at the gym before heading to work and while I was changing one of those body builder types said to me, "Wow, you're shredded."  Who says a marathon runner can't be "shredded?"  Anyways it made me feel good and now I'm tooting my own horn about it.  Sorry for the momentary laps of pride.  On a more humble note, I sure hope my leg feels good on my run tomorrow.

I was in St. George this weekend, but I got up early Saturday morning for a long run. It started well with only mild leg discomfort and I kept a pretty good pace through 16 miles. The last 4 miles I bonked though and was barely averaging 9 min miles and my leg started to hurt.

20 miles AP 8:13

The good news is my leg doesn't feel too bad today. I'm now officially in my 3 week taper so my number one priority is getting my leg right even if I don't log too many running miles. I know I can do elliptical pain free, but I hope to get in some race pace miles as well.
