I wanted to get a few miles in before the Boilermaker to more properly complete a taper. Also since I’m trying to follow a training plan for a marathon in the fall I want to keep my mileage up. The Boilermaker put a damper on my planned training runs so I compromised. I ended up running 2.2 miles on the Friday before the race. I ran it as an easy run and finished in 19:22, an 8:49 pace. I ran it at 9 PM after a short workout at the gym.
