Jeff’s Post – Taper and Lift!
I’m into my taper stage for the marathon and I will be honest I’m not really sure I like this whole taper thing. I do plan on reducing my mileage over the next few weeks but I’m not sure how much yet. My right foot has been hurting a little so I guess my sore foot will be my excuse to reduce my mileage. I really do want to be smart in what I’m doing – I’ve worked way too hard month after month to do something stupid now and I will keep telling myself not to push it. That being said, I figured it wouldn’t hurt to abuse my arms a bit. I had one killer arm/back workout after my run this morning. You always know you’ve had a good workout when you feel like you are going to throw up when you are done. So – Legs/Foot I hear you and I will take it easy on you for a few weeks but while my legs are resting my arms better lookout.
6.5 treadmill miles this morning – Have a great day and go for a run if you get a chance!
