am) 8 miles very easy jogging.
Taper: Tomorrow is supposed to be my last long run and I had every intention of running 20miles with 4 miles tempo at the beginning and then 8 miles at the end at goal pace. Pretty tough. After Thursday's run though- I feel confident in my fitness at this point. I talked to Mike- my buddy who I'm running Austin with- and he said to not do anything stupid... he knows me. I cut an afternoon run today to rest and I am going to cut my long run tomorrow and I'll still end up at 90 miles for this week. Tomorrows run is going to be the same structure as I had planned, but shorter. 4 miles at HR 170-175 then the last 4 miles at goal pace.
Next week- ~70 miles. 2 key workouts:
2 X 2 miles at LT.
Long run- 13 miles with 2 X 2 miles at goal pace.
All other runs will be easy.
