Embrace the taper

I've been trying to embrace the taper.  This week is really low mileage for me.  I have 4 on the schedule for today and 3 on Wednesday.  This leaves the marathon for Saturday and a few days off.  This will be my first trail full and I'm excited about that but I also need to be smart since I have a 50k in seven weeks.

I'll do my best to embrace the taper.

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


  1. I'm not fond at all with taper weeks either. Sounds like you will be doing 50K same weekend I will be doing double Half Mary in Nebraska, a 1/2M on Saturday and turn around and another on Sunday. Both on different rail trails that are suppose to be flat. Have a great time this weekend in your marathon. Can't wait to hear the results and see pics.

  2. I still want to earn my taper, so I have to put in a couple of big weeks before then... (this is number 2)
