You'll be fine. Most marathoners will do their last long run 3-4 weeks out when tapering.
As far as the iPod, that's why I don't let the kids I coach wear their music when doing a hard workout. I want them to learn to pay to the signals their bodies are sending at redline rather than tuning them out. ( No electronics other than watches are allowed in high school competition)
