5 miles easy / 47:25 / 9:29 avg pace
*Done at the crack of dawn (5:15AM), thankfully with my neighbor. If I were alone, I would have waited for some sunlight (no worries Mom and Dad).
Week 13 can be dubbed the “lazy” week. I began my taper with respect to overall mileage but I still had a 22-miler to do. I only planned to run 44 miles with 22 of them being a long run. So I only ran 4 days and took almost as many rest days. But it’s taper time, right?
TUE: 7 speed
WED: 7 easy
FRI: 22 awesome miles!
tempo easy (had to fit this in pre-Irene and my legs were in no shape for tempo miles)
SUN: rest (although I had fully intended to go to yoga but the studio was closed for the hurricane)
I have an unrelated question that I’d love feedback on: when you read blogs, do you prefer quality over quantity? Say a blogger were to only post 3 days per week but they were more high quality posts…would you prefer that over more “simple” posts every day? Do you like when bloggers are on a schedule (i.e., post every Mon/Wed/Fri) or it doesn’t matter?
