Taper Recap Oct 16-22

This taper was more relaxed than I remember other ones being. I didn’t feel like I was over-caffeinated and buzzing the entire time in spite of not having extra coffee (this has been the case in the past). I didn’t feel like I was going crazy from the mileage decrease, in fact, I didn’t even register I was running a marathon until really the morning of.

Here is what my week consisted of leading up to race day:

Monday: OFF. I did the NTC core strength workout, but that was it for the week. When the mileage comes down, so does the cross training.

Tuesday: 50′ easy in Raincouver, did my second Ghost Race in a monsoon, but I love running the Seawall regardless of the weather.

Wednesday: Solo WO, 10′ easy, 3km@MP, 1km@10km, 20′ easy.

Thursday: 30′ easy, little jaunt around the neighbourhood before work, so dark in the morning now, I wore a headlamp!

Friday: OFF, travel day.

Saturday: 20′ easy, went to the beach for my shake-out run.

Sunday: 5′ easy, Toronto Waterfront Marathon, recap coming later this week.

Total Weekly Mileage: 69.9km
