I was a little worried that my legs would be sore from Saturday's 20 miler at 7:25 pace, so I approached this run with extreme caution this morning.

TM

1 mile warm up 8:00

4 x 1.5 miles 6:40 with 1/2 mile recovery

I was very happy that my legs felt great and finally 6:40 pace felt nice and easy the whole way through the workout.  One more 10 mile mp run on Wednesday and then everything is nice and easy for the last 10 days before the marathon.

Today was my final hard run before starting my serious 10 day taper. My plan called for 10 miles at goal marathon pace. I decided to go with my best case senario mp which would put me at a 3 hour marathon.

TM

1 mile warm up 8:00

10 miles 6:50

How did it go?  Well, after 7 miles at "mp" I was working way too hard so I took a quarter mile walk break to get my HR back down and then finished the last 3 miles at "mp."

What did I learn? There is no way I should be shooting for a 3 hour marathon right now.  I think a 7:05 to 7:10 pace will be the smart pace for race day at least through about 20 miles and then see how I'm feeling. That will get me to the finish somewhere around 3:05 if I can maintain that pace.

It's all tapering from here on out!

Race day finally made the 10 day forecast today and it is predicting 49 Low/ 71 High with scattered showers. Oh how I hope that forecast holds up.
