Planned 7k alternating MP and faster than MP (4:00?). In fact, ran:
4:24, 4:09, 4:23, 4:18, 4:22, 4:09, 4:12.
Well, it was 6:30 at night and I was still feeling a bit sluggish from a late, big lunch, so it was a good workout even though I didn't hit the desired times. I did manage to push the last two k, which was good.
10.8 k 56 minutes
Weather: 12°, windy
18k easy at a bit under 6:00/k. 5ks and 3k were: 29:19, 28:48, 28:27, 17:16
Legs were a bit tired, felt only so-so.
So I guess only 7k hard and only 18k long qualifies as tapering, although I feel kind of tired. The next two weeks I really do have to rest my legs.
Weather: 14°, partly cloudy
Week: 57.7k 5:31 (5:11 run, 0:30 x-trng)
