Avoiding the rain with a mid-day out n back 16 miler on the BAA Marathon Course brought on thoughts of foregoing a taper. It's been week upon week of missed workouts that provided fresh legs for todays run. The power leg strength pulled me through the Newton Hills with relative ease. It's a nice feeling seeing how the 128 and Heartbreak Hills have been rather ominous lately.
16 m in ~1:57 for a pace about 7:22/ mile.
