What is a recovery run?

A recovery run is a run that is done at a very easy pace. It is designed to help your body recovery from a hard effort, whether that’s a race or simply a hard training session. By exercising at a low intensity you are limiting muscle damage yet are increasing the blood flow to and from the muscles. This means that more oxygen and key nutrients can be delivered to the muscles and more waste products removed, hence speeding up recovery.

I'm confused how many of my training long runs/miles I should run at race pace in the lead up to a marathon. I mostly train at about +30 sec pace on long runs. But I'm aware in the weeks leading up to the taper it's important to log some miles at race pace.
