I believe that taper runs should be shorter than the runs building toward a marathon, but not less intense. In particular I like to run a modest distance at a tempo pace, or even a race pace, about a week before the marathon. Today we went to the track at the Woodbury YMCA, six miles, 13 laps per mile.

Whining: Not so happy with my right Achilles tendon. It hurt during a run, then got better during the next walk. Most of the time it was OK, but that cycle repeated itself three or four times. Probably not a problem, but it’s in the log.
