I had 10 miles on the schedule tonight, which got cut short. I was feeling a little knee pain and didn't want it to get worse. So, I chose the smart route. I ended up running 7 1/2 miles. Not too shabby! I'm icing my leg while I cook dinner...spaghetti. This is my hubs favorite.
I have a question for you guys. Since I've never raced this far (1/2 marathon), how do I taper? Here's what I was planning:
20th: 5k (fast) run / spin
21st: 6 mile run
23: run to gym / weights/ run home (round trip run 5.15 miles)
25th: 5k fast run / spin
26th: not sure, usually a long run day
27th: 5k fast run / spin or rest day
30th: race day!!!
So, how far should I run on the 26th? Should I take the 27th as a rest day or do my normal workout? Thanks for every one's advice during this training cycle. I'm stronger than I ever though I was and am ready for this race. I just wish I could speed up time. I hate the waiting game.
