My weather forecast for the marathon - cold, fog - click to enlarge
Eleven days to go to the marathon.
My chest number is six! That should impress, even if my run time doesn't.
I had a good hit-out today at BBQ Stakes, a solid 25:30. Felt strong. The real first day of tapering is tomorrow, where I will only jog 6k. There is still one long hard run to be done on the weekend, and I will probably run the Stakes again next Wednesday. I think most entrants whose blogs I read start their tapers too early! But it is true that "too early" is far better than too late or not at all.
