First and foremost I must take exception with Zeke and his/her suggestion that jtpaten leave me to my own devices.

If that’s all you take exception too, I’m doing pretty good. I was just trying to say that if the goal is for both of you to be in Boston at the same time, the first thing for each of you to do is to qualify. He needs 3:15, so he should focus on that. If things go great and he runs 3:10 – great.

Should I slow down in my training, pace wise. For some reason I’ve been able to maintain a 7:20-7:30 pace while building my base.

Yes, slow down. I’m shooting for 2:55 in June and most of my runs are 7:30-8:00 pace. If most of your training is faster than MP, something is out of whack. Slow down and add more miles.
