    I think you’re on the right track, Matt. I tacked my first trail marathon onto a 40 mile week (totalling 66 for the week), and it turned out to be one of my best trail races to date!

    I didn’t taper before my last marathon. In fact, I ran a brutally hard 20 mile trail race two weeks before. I killed it! Go for it! Just remember to go easy when you feel your body needs it! You’ll know!
