PM: easy 8 mi. - Terrace Lake and  back - 1:04:15, first 4 were over 8:00, last 4 were under 8:00... moderate effort level on the climbs.  1 week until Fox Valley :)  I was shocked to see that I hadn't put on 5-8 lbs.  I feel bloated and didn't eat as well as I should've this weekend :(

PM - easy intervals - again, to get the blood flowing and take it real easy

5 mi. with 4 x 0.25 mi. at about 5k pace over at the local track -- total of about 38:00.  

encouraging that I am "jogging" at pace that was feeling moderate/hard a week ago - behold the power of the taper!  

Off / super easy today, 3-4 w/ strides on Saturday up in St. Charles, Marathon Sunday.

5 hour drive to St Charles today - 4 toll booths... :( 

Race expo was pretty weak for this race - no shoes and about 3 vendors.  Picked up the packet and bought a new singlet and some gu gels and headed to the hotel.  Apparently, the whole city of St. Charles is under construction... to be continued in the race report... :(

Got to the hotel, via a construction zone, at around 1pm.  Got all checked in to the Motel 8, and jogged a couple miles with strides around the nice adjoining neighborhood.

The town of St. Charles is actually very nice with a ton of parks and interconnected trails, but the amount of construction going on ruined it.  Its all centered around the St. Charles River and its eccletic downtown area, which again is awful because of the construction.
