Marathon Training, part 3

Just under 4 weeks to go until the Stockholm Marathon! I have my longest training run next week, 20 miles, and then I start to taper off in preparation for the big race.

I have to say I'm fairly pleased so far. I am a bit stiff in the patellar tendons these days, but stretching, ibuprofen, and a little knee brace on my right leg is keeping me on the road pretty well.

As I feared, the heat here in Texas is starting to interfere with my long runs. Getting up at 5AM on a weekend adds insult to (potential) injury! But I need to be done before the sun gets too warm, hence the early starts. I look forward to a cool week in Stockholm.
