WHOO HOO! It's TAPER TIME! Sunday's 20-miler was my final double digit run of this training cycle. I took it easy (trying to keep my pace around 10 minute miles, rather than starting at 9 minute miles and then fading down to walk run that averaged 11 minute miles) and my final three miles of the run were actually my fastest (and mile 20 was my overall fastest), so I guess you could say I left enough gas in my tank ;) From here on out, it's just short runs to keep the legs loose and the mind clear. LET'S DO THIS THANG! PS This marathon is NOT going to be one I am racing... We'll be on our feet at the Michigan football game Saturday afternoon and then out "late" for the Red Wings season home opener Saturday night... But who really sleeps the night before a race anyway?! ["You can sleep when you're dead" - my mom]

How were your workouts this past week?
