I am running a ten mile race in 6 days so I guess this is a taper week for me. My coach is decreased the time and intensity of my runs this week. My schedule for the week goes like this:
Today - rest of a 30 minute easy spin. I am going to take the rest day. My legs are beat from the 11.3 miles yesterday.
Tuesday - 40 minute run with intervals
Wednesday - rest or spin. I am planning on an easy ride.
Thursday - 35 minute tempo run
Friday - 30 minute recovery run
Saturday - rest
Sunday - 10 mile race with an easy 1 mile warm up and 1 mile cool down.
I went crazy on my taper for the marathon but that was a huge decrease in miles and over two weeks. I hope this week is better for me!
This is the third year I am running this race and the first with a time goal. I have yet to set that time goal but I have some thoughts on it.
I am loving this running coach thing. I love knowing that someone else is working out the pace, crunching numbers, and all that fun stuff for me! I do enough number crunching at work.
