3 weeks til Boston, we’re tapering
9 miles on the second day of recovery from Sunday’s Syracuse Half, today felt like the real recovery run. The body was a little achy, the legs tight, the hamstrings especially sore – yes, I was reminded that I did an intense event a couple of days ago. As I had some time today, perused the Boston Marathon participant guide, going over the schedules of events and the logistics. Definitely packed with protocols, obviously not your average weekend race, part of the taper of the next couple weeks will be to prepare mentally for all the steps leading up to the starting line in Hopkington.
