    HI Is it normal that the heart rate increases during the last week of the taper vs pace (about 10-15%). I’m experience this and concerned that I have over trained. I m following the marathon level 3 training program. What would you recommend?

    Hi Craig,

    How are you feeling? If you didn’t own a heart rate monitor, would you still be concerned?

    Coach Matt


    A really good point, feeling strong and the training sessions feel easy

    Sounds to me you’re ready to race!
