Tasting the Taper

Tasting the Taper

“Tasting” is the operative word here.

This week is really the last BIG week… 9x800s on Tuesday morning, an easy (yet tiring) 10 miler on Thursday, and 20-miler #3 on Sunday… and then the taper *almost* begins.  (and it can’t come soon enough right now since I feel like I’m swimming up to my eyeballs in schoolwork at the moment)

… *almost* because my last hard speed work-out is waiting for me next week (10×800, probably on Tuesday or Wednesday morning)…. and then it’s taper time.

So close.  There are still a substantial number of miles before *it* begins, but it’s coming.

Hard to believe, but it’s coming.

What'cha thinkin?
