|I've heard that you should have a tapir before a marathon,|
but what exactly am I supposed to do with this thing?
Sunny lunch run to Misquamicut and back. 70 degrees!
Resisting the urge to go on the trails this week. Don't wake to leave it to chance of an ankle twist or trip. Ran on lower Pawcatuck roads. Highlight was a gray fox crossing my path.
Easy paced miles in Needham, MA, except two miles in the middle at 6:25 and 6:10. Everything remaining for the few days before the marathon will be intentionally slower.
Lunch time run from the Westerly Y on the Springbrook loop.
Total rest day. Two days out. Repeatedly checking out the weather in Maine.
Sugarloaf Marathon. Tough. Full write-up coming very soon.
Weekly synopsis: Taper (or tapir?) week culminating with a marathon that was quite tough for me. Some time off now, followed by prepping for fun summer runs and tris.
