Week's Summary

This week was all about tapering for Sunday's marathon in Fort Collins Colorado.  Granted it, I wasn't supposed to do an 18.25 mile race (well, it isn't recommended) the previous week but I had signed up for the race and I wanted to complete the series -- which I did.

That being said, I feel pretty good going into this weekend's marathon.  I've had some pretty solid runs this week, especially Wednesday's run.  Aside from races, I've gotten in some quality workouts during the week.  Hopefully this will lead to some speed gains in the future.

The race's weather looks ideal -- although there is a threat of rain and snow.  Hopefully it won't be bad but I've survived just about every weather condition in my marathoning history.  At least it isn't going to be insanely hot.
