"Suck it up, it's Boston"...one of the many posters which resonated with me while running this tough, warm Patriot's Day Monday from Hopkinton to downtown Boston. If you need another race on your bucket list, this is the one! Those of you privileged to qualify and run it can attest to this...

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.
Have a great run in Boston! You are inspiring!Heide Unger 4/5/17 11:33 pm
Sounds like you are going to be ready. Wished I was running. You feel like a rockstar running Boston. At least my son and I felt that way... Good luck and keep us posted!Bob Anderson 4/6/17 10:10 am
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! Kat Powell 4/6/17 4:01 pm

20X440s @1:39avg. Need to work those fast twitch leg muscles in preparation for Boston. Some wind on the opposite numbered intervals, but needed to tough it out nonetheless. Could be a headwind starting out in Hopkinton, right?

20X440 @ 1:39 or 6:36/mile pace w/90sec RI. Tough stamina workout in preparation for Boston five weeks from today...whew!
