Three weeks left and maybe the most important three weeks of the training, the Taper! The plan is to follow Pfitzingers three week plan with some personal tweaks, maybe doing a 5K as a tempo run this week etc. The taper has started out well and its very welcomed as the weather its kind of shitty again, rain today and another snow storm tomorrow....Its kind of nice just do 40 min of running then....
Slowly, Ive started to use the Boston equipment. This year it will be gear only from Sugoi and shoes from Mizuno. More of reviews etc following weeks.....Last long run on Sunday, only 17 miles pheew, got to love the Taper!

Boston 2011

Pheew, three months into Boston prep and almost there.... Of course the goal for 115th edition of Boston Marathon is to run it under 3 hours... So far so good, no injuries other then a couple of bruises. The big issue this year has been the weather, apx nine major snow storms, minus degress (-30 in SWE)etc etc. The motivation has been tested for sure.
Finally I have now started the taper and I can already feel how the energy is coming back slowly and I can stay awake after 8 PM.....
