8:24 Easy Hills with 4x0.3mi at half marathon pace (6:40's) Tapering.
Profile: Eldon Regua Wednesday, 4/05, 2017 3:07 pm
Tapering for Boston. Why taper the last 2-3 weeks prior to the race? The idea is to wind down, heal any damage and start building reserves and strength to get to the starting line in Boston the best possible shape. Today was my last Fast Finish Long Run(FFLR). First 6.8miles EZ, then next 4 miles at 7:52/mile which is about my target pace, 8min/mile in Boston, then cool-down for remainder of run.

+reply by Kat Powell Thursday, 4/06, 2017 4:01 pm
Ran Boston for first time in my life at age 65 last year. Did not taper like you are doing, but never really trained at high mileage anyway. You are very precise in your method. I just run for health: stress relief, weight control , therapy, and because I'm addicted. Have an awesome time in Boston with all that positive energy, and remember to high-five the kids on the course!

Good seeing you yesterday at the PA Double. Congrats on a good race. How did you like your first Double? Bob
+reply by Todd Morimoto Monday, 2/20, 2017 11:28 am
I enjoyed the Double immensely. It gave me a challenge to run with many fast runners. The race was very well organized with well marked course and helpful volunteers at sign in and on-course. With the course change, I am amazed all the cones were out at every corner and path split. Every mile markers were painted on the mile and turn around points -- all accurate to my Garmin --well done. As my goal races are the half and full marathon, I will continue use the Doubles to work on my speed and endurance. I tried even splits, but the excitement and competition pushed me to run harder. Thank you for a great race.
