<p><span style="display:none;"> </span>It is Marathon Monday!  GOGOGOGOGOGO <strong>bhearn, jenruns, loopy and ileneforward!</strong>  It looks like ideal weather there too, which is obviously always a huge factor.  I hope we see some great races!</p>

<p>Week #1 of taper for me.  Lots of taper twinges already -but I take that as a good sign.  Plenty of time to recovery and get strong.  Focus for the next 2 weeks is rest.  Hopefully work will cooperate with that endeavor!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>M: rest/abs</p>
<p>T: 4.8 easy</p>
<p>W: 6.7 easy</p>
<p>R: 8.1 easy / arms & abs</p>
<p>F: rest</p>
<p>Sa: 8 and change with a 5K (21:35)</p>
<p>Sun: 16</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Total: 44 and change</strong></p>
<p> </p>
<p>I was happy with my 5K effort.  For some reason, I am usually slow in 5Ks just before goal marathons.  21 anything is pretty solid for me, so I'll take it!</p>

<p>Bob and Jen both hit the half way point at 1:29:53!  Woot!  Hang in there for those sub-3s!!</p>
<p>Congrats again, <strong>Greg!</strong>  Sounds like you ran a very smart race.  I still don't know how you wear an HRM in races.  I guess you'd get used to it, but I know it would freak me out.  <span><img alt="rolleyes.gif" src="" style="width:16px;height:16px;"></span></p>
<p> </p>
<p>Sub-40 is pretty amazing and I know you've been working for it for a long time.  Nice to see you smash it by 25 seconds!</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Bob and Jen</strong> both did great in Boston.  I believe <strong>Bob</strong> pulled off a negative split, which is pretty darn impressive on that course.  I haven't heard how <strong>Loopy or Ileneforward</strong> did.  Sounds like awesome conditions out there!</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Greg</strong> - also thanks for the kudos on the 5K/long run combo. I have done that 3 times this season (the first 2 being 10K then 20 or 18).  It isn't easy and it has meant my long runs have been a little slower, but I am hoping it translates into something positive.  We shall see.</p>
