Not quite true; I feel like my taper started two weeks ago when I topped out on miles. But that's another story...
Week went pretty well. I'm starting to have problems fitting in all the miles that I want to do in the number of miles Daniels' suggests at this point in my training. Group runs are great, and I have the Q workouts, and all that, but 49 miles just doesn't seem to be enough in a week.
funny that. 49 miles is quite a few. But it is quite wonderful to have many different group runs to choose from.
Anyway, it was a pretty good week of running- I haven't done anything too stupid, I hope. The 14.5 miles of five finger running may have been a bit of a mistake. I feel more sore this week than I have in quite a while. I'm certainly moving around a bit more stiffly than I have over the past few weeks. But it's just such fun to run through mud and trail with them!
Guy I was running with talked about running in a sport kilt. sounded interesting... I may have to think about getting one, just for fun. If I ever do SCA stuff like Pennsic again, It may be worth the money. Especially if I can run in fivefingers, a kilt, and nothing else. :) I imagine I'd turn a few heads, if I'm lucky.
Next week, I've got another tempo/interval run, and a 19 mile marathon pace run (four miles total of warm up/cool down). 49 miles again. we'll see how it goes!
