I finally feel like I'm ready to taper. I guess its about time since my marathon is only a week away. Today was my last long run. (I don't really consider 8 long.) It was a bit faster than I would have preferred, but actually good race pace practice. I've been thinking more about a target pace. 10:00 min/mile pace might be too fast for me. Maybe 10:15 min/miles would be better. I want to have something concrete to print out and pin to my number. I feel better making it conservative and then seeing if I can beat it. For me that's better than to be too aggressive and feel like I'm struggling to keep up.
Back to the title of this post....I'm taking tomorrow off and will just do my regular easy 5's on Tuesday and Thursday. So it will be an easy week...until Sunday.
