Recovery for Reals

Yesterday was a 5 mile run with 6x100m strides. We started the run from our old apartment so we would be forced to finish there so we would be forced to fill more boxes and move them. I hate this moving in town shit. When you move out of town you better have everything done on moving day. At least all of this will be over by Saturday.

The run was fine. I am having some pain in my lower left leg....don't know what that's all about. Today we have 10 miles with 4x1200m@5K pace (that's right...it's another V02 Max). We'll run down to the track on Chicago Ave sprint it out and run back.

Friday it's 10 miles, then 4 on Saturday and the plan calls for 20 on Sunday but I think we'll try for 22 and see how that goes. Hopefully my lower leg agrees with all the miles....

Monday we start the taper....who's excited? ooooh me memememe!!!!!

I am soooooooooooooooooooo looking forward to the taper. I am feeling beat up right now, racing, VO2 max tonight, 10 Thursday, 20 plus miles on the weekend. I was looking over the taper on Monday, it looks so nice.

Per something I read in Runners World I might try some water jogging at the Y on a few of the taper runs and base them on time. Then with the extra time actually try to lift some weights if I can remember what they are.
