Tapering

Well, the cold wet rain kept me from running my ten miles I had planned today. I was fretting a little about this, because with my work schedule, I’m not going to be able to get any sort of a long run in before the WV Trilogy.

Tapering? Should I be tapering? I got an email from Adam Cassedy, RD of the West Virginia Trilogy, and he mentioned tapering. I was feeling all guilty about not getting to my ten mile run in today.

Then I did remember I just DID do a long run- 26.2 miles in fact, on Saturday. That should be a good enough long run.

I’m feeling pretty good about the Trilogy. A 50K on Friday, a 50 Miler on Saturday, and a 1/2 marathon on Sunday. I’ve gotten my list of lists compiled. Sunday I will start to assemble the necessary running clothes-I need three days of running clothes (good thing I own a bunch!)

I did walk one mile on the treadmill, at 10% incline, at 3 MPH. Interestingly to me, this wasn’t hard at all. I guess it’s time to ramp up the speed! And then I ran one hour on the treadmill.
