10 easy with HR under 140 on the roads.  It's amazing how much easier it is to run the roads than the trails, but not nearly as fun.

6 miles nice and easy on the roads with HR under 140. 

It's always so weird tapering and starting to run shorter distances.  I barely felt like I did anything this morning.

I decided I needed one last mp run before Boston, mostly for mental confidence than anything and figured I was still 12 days out so today would be a good day. I also wanted to try and figure out what exactly my mp should be for race day.

After a nice easy half mile warm up I determined to run 10 miles by feel without looking at my pace on my watch and try to keep it at what felt like mp effort.  I hit pretty consistent splits around 6:58 and then subconsciously probably because I was anticipating the end finished up the last 3 miles with 6:49, 6:50, 6:40.  Then I cooled down with a half mile jog.  So after that I'm thinking my mp should be right around 7:00, but I'll probably just wait and see how I feel on race day and try to just run what feels right that day.  

I will do one more easy medium long run on Friday, but everything will be nice and short until the big day.

6 nice and easy with HR under 140 on another beautiful spring morning in Havasu.

My watch gave me a new VO2 Max of 55 today.  Another improvement, just in time for Boston!

That was the last run of any significance I will do before Boston.  10 days!!!!
