Felt great, relaxed a bit on #3 (maybe too much) but all is done. Just rest now before Sunday (and fingers crossed I stay healthy).

Interestingly, I found out recently that I am imunoglobin-A deficient. Seems like I always happens before big races, and this might help explain it.

8 easy. Foggy and cool morning. My legs still have muscle soreness. I'll never understand how I can be >2000 miles into a season and still get muscle soreness. Especially during a taper.
