streuth first run of taper done in hot weather!
5 miles - faster than marathon pace - 9.07,9.13,9.12,912,and 08:41 . Loved it but no way could I do that for 26/27 miles!! I chuffin wish!!
So pleased I wasn't the only one with a bad "last long run" I went out Saturday instead of the usual Sunday, my legs felt like they had put on about a stone each and I came back feeling like I had just run the marathon but I agree with Daz a few late nights and not drinking enough in this weather was probably my downfall.
Really looking forward to the taper, sports massage Thursday and then a nice relaxing 15 on Sunday. Think the weather is going to cool down a bit too so that'll be a bit more pleasant for running.
I stand corrected Daz! On Easter hols now - 2 weeks of doing very little! Apart from totally wrecking our bedroom to accommodate new fitted wardrobes. Why does everything have to get so messy before there's any improvement? Have to take the old ones out first so that we can re-site 2 of them in the box room - storage for my running kit and OH's golf kit!
Good luck with all your tapering
I may be up on Saturday too so hope to meet you guys (and Caro?)
If I don't see you Daz hope all goes well xx
