Playing the taper card today and not running. I'm going in to this marathon feeling much better than before TOU last Fall. Last Fall I was over-fatigued, and had a couple of little niggling pains etc. Now I feel no fatigue, and have no pains anywhere. I'm hoping the combination of having several more months of base miles under my belt, and having cut back a little on higher mileage weeks (50-60 + 1 week around 70 miles), will bring me to marathon day better prepared to go the distance without crashing. My only concern is endurance. I've run 5 long run since January (3 @ 20 and 2 @ 18), with the last one being three weeks before race day. I'm looking forward to being stronger for the next cycle of training and putting in more mileage, but for now this will have to do. Hopefully, I'll finally break the 4 hour barrier and if it's a perfect day, I can come in around 3:45-ish.
