Rain for the weekend… Taper! Apprentice Donald Trump. Training cools down
The weekend was quite uneventful… For most of it, it rained! Saturday turned out to be nice for the afternoon and consisted of more thatch raking, trying to get dead sods to grow and dandelion pulling. Amazingly boring activities!
Managed to get a 3 mile run in on Saturday… I always think it is best to run to loosen up the legs following a long LSD… For the most part this strategy worked.
Sunday 6 miles
Managed 55 miles for the week. This will be my “peak” mileage in this training cycle. I would liked to have hit 60 but 55 will do. Now begins the downhill, tapering journey to the race May 22… 3 weeks give or take a few days…
I will embrace every single day of this taper… I got 12 weeks of training in from the time I decided I was going to run this marathon. Bumped the mileage up quite rapidly and I am looking forward to the downward slope and fewer miles.
Ended up watching the Apprentice last night… I was hoping Star would get booted, I am equally satisfied that Holly got fired… She was useless… I have a whole new opinion of Donald Trump. I think he’s a dick… Almost couldn’t watch the show.
