Monday I took easy and then Tuesday put a light run with 6 x 200m strides at race pace on pavement.
This week I will be completing small amounts of serious speed on hard surfaces. Running on slow, soft surfaces (like grass) during your taper will tune your legs to feel slow and heavy, the hard surfaces will get my legs (and brain) ready to run fast on race day.
The last 14 weeks of build has seen the following miles logged with two weeks where the body broke down slightly, the first(84) being from pushing the milage too quickly without adapting to the load and the second(0) after attempting a yoga position I knew I shouldn't but my competitive spirit got the best of me:-);
- now we taper!
This week should be fun!
