Today’s run (street): 3.4 miles
I didn’t run or post yesterday or Monday and this will hardly count as one. My schedule has been full this week and I’m still dealing with my cough, though that hasn’t been the reason for skipping my workout on Tuesday. I did manage to get out this morning before getting tied up all day on work related items. This is a taper week and I’m certainly getting the “less running” part down.
The temperature was close to 80 degrees at 8:15 AM when I went out on my run. I knew that I should try to generate some speed since I’m going to be racing on Sunday, but I really didn’t push my pace. Nothing to report except that I was glad to get back on the road.
Tomorrow and Friday will be early city days so I don’t know when I’ll get my final taper run in. I felt good on the run after a couple of day’s rest, although I am still dealing with this annoying cough. My biggest concern right now is whether I’ll have a voice by the time I make a presentation tomorrow afternoon. This isn’t going to be a big mileage week, but I hope to get back on schedule next week.
