i felt great yesterday so i ran hard. and today...shin trouble was back. weird nervy thing again along with a very dull but lingering pain. i am icing it right now. icing seems to help it a lot.

so i decided to start tapering a bit sooner than i originally planned, with less miles this week than i was going for when the week began. i feel like i am on the border of overtraining, and if i fall over it i can't go back. so i would rather just be cautious about it. it has been a huge committment for me to run 10+ miles a day for the last 10 weeks...there were only a few days where i went less than 10 and i ran all my races untapered. so i feel great about my training and am surprised that i held up, because i wasn't sure how i would handle higher-mileage training. looking at my training log last year at this time - right before boston - my highest weekly mileage was 56 miles. that was my peak mileage! the rest were in the 35-40 range, sometimes dropping as low as 30. but this time i have not had a week below 60 so i am feeling good. BUT, i am also feeling tired, and i think my shin could be the way my body is telling me to back off. with only a week to go, i feel like it will be ok if i stop the 10-milers and just focus on pace, form and staying healthy.

ok...so now for my run. it was SO SLOW! i think i set a slow sunnyside up record....21:30 today as opposed to 19:46 on monday. i think my grandma passed me on the way up. i couldn't tell because relative to my speed, she was a blur. i was also passed by a lady with a twin jogging stroller, a cyclist with two flat tires, and a dog with no legs. yes, slow.

more icing tonight. hopefully i will get in a decent run tomorrow, although i am no longer planning on a 15 miler.

Your slow is my super fast! hee hee!

Great job on all your training, you're inspiring, and fun to read about!

Way to listen to your body!

Good luck w/ your taper!!! (I think sometimes tapering is harder than training, mentally)
