This was a good workout - I think. Generally I like to do my once or twice weekley quality workouts relatively fresh. But today I'm sore everywhere from the weights yesterday. There must be something to be gained by running at faster than race pace on sore legs that will pay dividinds on race day?

2.25 mile warmup.

5 x 1 mile in 5:56, 5:52, 5:49, 5:46, 5:41. Quarter mile jog interval. I wanted to do six, but was feeling pretty ragged on the last one and I didn't want to push it 14 days out from a marathon.

Cool down.

2.5 mile walk in the afternoon. I always try to add in some walking during a marathon taper because my appetite doesn't decline with my mileage and I can pick up five pounds in a week with no problem.
