Distance: 6.2 mi
Ahh… glorious taper miles. I actually wanted to run the short route today but I missed the turn in the dark. It was only an extra mile though so it wasn’t that big a deal. I wanted to try to just run my marathon goal pace (9:30) but I ended up speeding up just a bit (9:00) to run with some friends. I just didn’t feel like running alone. For the rest of my taper, though, I am going to really try to dial in my pace and get a good, comfortable feel for a 9:30. I have been up and down so much with my pace that I just want to take the next two weeks to focus on pace.
I still don’t know what the weather is going to be like yet. I can’t find a long term forcast that stretches past 10 days so I’m just going to have to wait. Right now it looks to be about 75 degrees but who knows. After Chicago there’s no telling what it will be like. Stupid weather…
