the joys of taper

saturday

3 weeks til Boston, we’re tapering

Took a rest day on Friday, tired, it was a cold rainy day, and why not, I’m in the middle of taper and a rest day felt appropriate.  Instead, met up with friends whom I haven’t seen in a while and took in the night – maybe had too much fun but was the right time to get it ‘out of my system’ a couple of weeks before the marathon.

Was followed today by an 8 mile ‘recovery’ run in the park on a cloudy but dry afternoon.  Didn’t fully recover but will try to run a 5k in the morning – maybe that’ll reset the system…
