Haven't been on the forum this weekend as a little hectic - so a quick wrap up:
1. Saturday: Decided to race as had not run since Thursday morning (felt like a bit of a taper) glad I did as ran a new PB for 10k of 39:01 - which was nice (see report in events).
2. Sunday: Legs feeling very stiff after race, but wanted a reasonable run so did an off-road "walk-about" (my traditional run until you don't feel like it anymore) and ended up doing just under 2 hours.
Today: probably 30 minutes easy.
Why: relatively heavy weekend and now starting two-week marathon taper.
Last hard day: Saturday.
Last rest day: Friday.
Beginning my marathon taper today but feeling absolutely paranoid about catching a cold - everywhere I go there seem to be people with sniffles, am taking a multi-vit everyday to try and stay on top - but a hectic schedule at work means I can't avoid coming into contact with about a million people over the next two weeks!
