Taper time....

Rest day on the schedule; I'm happy to take it as my legs a still sore from yesterday's run.


Now it's taper time.....

1) Less running
2) Slower running
3) Time to repair my legs before the big event
4) Time to get me mentally ready to run the marathon

I know that some of you go crazy during your taper but that's not me.  I embrace the time to allow my legs the rest they need so they grow strong and are ready for that kind of mileage.  Frankly, I'm looking forward to after the marathon when I can rest my legs further and really get them feeling strong.  It will be nice to go out and do a run just because I feel like it and not because it's on a schedule.  So if you are in your taper period, like many of us now, enjoy it because before you know it, you'll be back to training for something again soon.

Have a great day and.....Keep Running!!!!!!
