As the taper has begun, it is not the time to push incredibly hard. And yet one cannot back off completely either. So tonight it was 15k at marathon pace on the treadmill, watching the CBC playoff preview. I know it all now, so if you have any questions, fire away!
The run felt good, but only after a little bit. There is always the adjustment period on the treadmill, getting used to the moving track and the incline. But after about 30 minutes, things felt good and the HR was pretty stable at 160. This bodes well for my body's state at the moment and for the race in a mere 13 days. Guh.
