Six Days to Go

The countdown is really on now. The taper is in full effect and the name of the game is rest.

That doesn’t mean no running. It means cutting back on the pace a bit, and dialing back on the mileage. I’m planning a 7km easy run tonight with another 10km at race pace on Wednesday.

That extra km on Monday will help push me over 200km for the month – the third straight 200km+ month for me for the first time ever.

Thursday is another off day, and Friday is travel day with a long flight to Vancouver to worry about. I’ll try and get most of the walking and exploring done on Friday so I won’t be tempted to do too much on Saturday.

A short 3km friendship run at the Denman St. Running Room on Saturday morning will help stretch things out a little bit and relieve some of the pre-race crazies.
