Happy Humpday! Last week was my second taper week. I also adjusted my training plan a bit because I didn’t want to go too much above 60 miles in the week (since I generally use the 10% rule every-other-week to add additional mileage). I did 57 miles the week before I began to taper, so around 60 was a good sweet-spot for me. SO that meant that I really only had around 10 miles to cover before race day (bonus when you run a really long race ; ) ….).
Monday, 5/20: Rest day. First day of classes!

Friday, 5/24: Rest Day. Picked up my bib!
