Hi guys, just done my second 20 mile training run, so now officially into taper. Have to say I'm really worried now as really not sure I can do another 6 miles on the end of that.
Followed the Smart coach 16 week program so should be ok but I have felt totally drained on both my 20 milers. Based on recent 10k times the race time calculator reckons I should be racing at about 10:00 to 10:30 but on both these long runs I've done around 11:30 and been absolutely shattered.
Just hope the taper works and and I'll have more energy on the day
