Nice start to the taper week! I ran more than 2.5 miles up Rose Canyon Road, because I did some funky business with my watch and paused it when I should've been running it...anyway. I figured I would run until my watch said 2.5 miles. I did have to make it to the top of the hill, so it was 2.7 by the time I stopped :) Then I took a different way home and I thought it was shorter, but I finished with exactly 5.5 - so I'll take it. Mid 7's for the downhill miles and it felt good. Ready to get this darn marathon over!
