I hope I got all of my poor running out today. Usually, I have a lot of bounce in my legs during this 16 mile run, but today, it felt like I was dragging a ball and chain behind me. This could have something to do with idea to use just a two week taper.
Setting here now, I do have some concerns that I will be too tired going into this race. I am not trying to make excuses but I am just being realistic.
While most of the time, I feel like I bounce back fairly quickly from hard workouts and high volume. I do have to be honest with myself. At 45, my body can only take so much of a beating.
Hopefully, I good massage this coming week, low volume in miles, and one last speed session will leave me with some bounce in my legs by next Saturday.
