Taper week

Tuesday, April 6th, 2010

Since I have the Race for the Roses half-marathon this weekend I am planning to taper a bit this week. That said, I did eight miles today, but eight slow miles. I think I will run tomorrow and Thursday then take Fri and Sat off. Tomorrow my tentative plan is to do a short tempo run, maybe 4-5 miles with a good portion of that being fast, then I’ll finish my pre-race week off with a recovery run on Friday. This way I will be nice and well rested for the race (I hope.)

My run this morning was a soggy somewhat cold base run. I didn’t push it on the run, just a steady run in the drizzle and fat burning zone.
