>Racing>Goal of Sub-3 Hour Marathon
Running out of mistakes!
Right on Hereford...
Don't doubt your training, you've strung together some good, solid months there. And that was only 1 week of lower volume training - maybe feeling down last week plus the hammy thing this week is a touch of over-training? You should be coming within a week of tapering, anyway? I'm not a fan of long (3 week tapers) and you's would be more like 4 but you might need it. At any rate I'd do what's necessary to heal up the hammy and I'd probably ignore the sniffles.
