Ramping up before ramping down

Just two and a half weeks until the marathon and I'm ramping up for a big mileage week. Since I was set back last week my final long 20 mile run will be this coming weekend. Then I'll taper down to the marathon. So far my hip is feeling fine. I had a really great 10.76 mile run this morning at a 8:49 pace. Pretty good clip for me. It was chilly, about 42 °F, and windy (20 mph). But I felt pretty comfortable after a mile or two. I'm excited to finally run my home town marathon to its fullest. I've also signed up for the Manitoba marathon in June and the Twin Cities marathon in October.
