Running Question: Run Easy or Hard?

I posted this on Twitter but I thought I’d post it here too in hopes of more responses.

I’m running a marathon relay on Sunday and my leg is 5.6 miles.  Next Saturday (one week away!) is my Disney half marathon.

Question of the day…

Do I run the relay leg as an easy taper/training run or do I run hard?

My team won’t care either way as we’re doing it for fun.  I’m just not sure which would be smarter.  Even if I run it hard I should be recovered just fine by next Saturday I think… right?

What do you think?  What would you do?
