Run easy on Sat and Sun, then go out to the race and have some fun - see what you can do.
When you are done with the race, come back to this site's calculators and plug your time in to the race predictor calculator. The predictor will convert your time to a 10 mile and marathon equivilents, among others. The marathon equivilent will give you a rough idea of where you stand right now as far as marathon fitness. The 10 mile equivilent gives you an approximation of your lactate threshold pace - the pace at which you should run approx. 10% of your training miles at (broken up into 5-20 minute segments, of course).
Remember to give yourself 3 days of recovery (easy runs, off days, or cross training)after the race before resuming harder training.
