This Week's Training Notes:

Tapering: With only 2 weeks to go, the bulk of your training is over. Tapering is when you reduce your workload to a level which will let you maintain fitness allow for maximum recovery so that you will be ready on race day. As you can see in this week's training plan, your weekly training will stay the same, but your weekend endurance run will be reduced.

Trying to gain fitness from hard training at this point would only be offset by the fatigue.
