Thanks be to Off n' Running for ordering me a new usb antenna to make my watch speak to me computer. Yesterday's run was really good; I did ten miles, alternating fast and slow miles starting at mile 3. It felt great; my fastest mile was sub-8:00!
I might have run too fast for a taper, but I certainly didn't run too long. It felt great to get out there and run quickly. Today I'm taking a rest day, and tomorrow's All-County Orchestra auditions mean that I'll be on the elliptical. I'll try to run easy Wednesday and/or Thursday before making the trip to Maryland Friday afternoon. Other than that, I plan to eat a lot (of mostly good food) and rest up for race day!
