taper angst

the one thing i find really difficult about long distance running is the taper during the week of the race. i guess i'm not alone here. but it still doesn't make it any easier. in the last 5 days i've run once! still eating like a proverbial horse!
anyway, by 9am tomorrow the taper will be over as we head out for a very local 28miles followed by another 14 on sunday....i think it going to be a bit blowy on the tops!

I know the feeling - I've been doing that for the past 2 weeks! But it's all worth it on the day when you can finally get rid of the ants crawling all over the old legs :) Have a fun weekend out and good luck!!!

Good luck on your adventures. Sounds epic and well worth a bit of a taper. Happy running
