Here is my (unsolicited) advice for you marathoners:
-Today (Monday) is the last day you should run "long." I used to, when very fit, run 15-16 on Sunday or Monday.
-Try "Jess's Modified Carbo-loading" After the last longer run, fast for two days or so. Then start eating more carbohydrate heavy diet until race day. This way you don't gain too much extra weight as you taper and eat more carbs.
-on Tuesday, try a run in which you do a mile easy, a mile at pace, a mile easy (repeat until you have 3 pace miles, and a mile cool down. Total = 7 miles.
-Wed 4
-Thu 3 or rest
-Fri 2 (don't take the day off... you will be stiff on Sat.)

This is all assuming you're fit.
Good luck to all runners this weekend!
