So that's week 1 of tapering done, sort of nice to take it easy and get some extra time in bed in the morning...even if I do feel awful lazy doing it.
This week consisted of:
- Monday: Rest
- Tuesday: Rest
- Wednesday: 5miles @ 8:13min pace & 2.66mile walk
- Thursday: 2mile walk
- Friday: 3miles @ 8:12min pace
I noticed the other day when updating some stats that Portumna will be my 20th event of a marathon distance or longer, these break down as eight of these in 2014, seven in 2013, three in 2012 and two in 2011. Interesting to see the year on year increase and I must say it certainly gets easier to recover after each event.
Weekly Total: 13 miles
Miles This Year: 977 miles
