4M easy early this morning to help front load the taper week. Decent pace (7:15 avg) for an early morning run, getting psyched for TCM this weekend. Forecast right now for TCM...scattered showers, low 50, high 68. Temp perfect, not happy about the showers but things can change in 6 days!
Can you believe what Haile did at Berlin...2:03:59 for a 4:44 average pace! Amazing!

Great 6M run at lunch on an awesome day. 1M warmup with Pat B (7:20), 2M at Threshold pace (5:35, 5:26), 2.5 at MP (5:58, 5:48, 5:50ish) and a 0.25M cooldown back to the office. Overall the pace felt very manageable and comfortable, though the 5:26 mile was fatiguing and took my breath away a bit. A good last hard paced run before TCM. Ran in my Tangent's that I am planning on using for the race just to make sure they are feeling good and are comfortable.
