12 Days till JJ

I did a nice easy trail run this morning with some strides at the end.

Total: 7 miles

Last week I cut about 20% mileage from the previous week.  I'll cut about 30% more mileage this week from last week, so I should end the week around 60 miles. It feels good to be tapering.

6 nice and easy on the trails. The weather is amazing right now in the morning. I am a little worried about how hot it will be in the afternoon during JJ though.

20 miles this morning pushing the pace a bit.  I started off the first 3 miles or so kind of slow but then ran the rest at a much faster clip.  I did the last half on  trails and was able to continue a fairly good pace even on the trails.  10 days till the big day, so that will be my last long run. I'll do one more medium long run on Friday at a slow pace all on the trails.

13 nice and easy on the trails this morning with Blake. Today is his 40th birthday. Oh to be so young. Happy birthday Blake!

I used today as a dress rehersal and wore all the gear I'll be wearing on race day.  From here on out it is just about keeping my legs sharp.  Race day is approaching fast!
