Can you really have a taper if you haven’t actually trained? As previously confessed, this has not been my greatest training session ever, perhaps my second worst. (My first worst being my first marathon training session in which my longest run was 14 miles….) I have done two 16 mile long runs, so that is good. But nothing over that, no speed work, and minimal week day runs. So, can I really call this last two weeks a taper? Or just more of the same. My long run will be shorter and I’m walking more with Parker during the week than running, but at this point, I can’t train harder and be ready. So I’m just declaring my readiness.
This should be a hoot.
