I am super happy with today's race. Ran 80 miles for the week, and was able to push it today.
Boston here i come!
HOLY COW. Nice going!

I came in at 35:22 in my 8k this morning. That's a 4 minute pr for that course.
Thomas: Enjoy the taper.
I remember when we ran somewhat similar times. Those days are in the past now. Nice going!
It finally hit me last night that I've gone into overtraining. So, it's not just a taper but a full-on recovery. I doubt I'll run a step between now and Saturday, which should be fine.
