Five Days to Go

Tuesdays are usually made for tempo runs, but I’ve got an offset schedule this week thanks to a Saturday long run. So that means this tempo Tuesday is a rest day instead.

With the taper well underway, I’m making sure to do some daily stretching to keep things from tightening up while I back off on the miles a little bit.

There’s nothing left to gain by running more, and lots to lose if I don’t get the rest I need leading up to the race. Taper is tough, but after 17 weeks of training, I’m enjoying not going out in the evenings for those treadmill runs.
