Let the taper begin

Yesterday was my last long-ish run before the Flying Pig Half Marathon on May 2.  Having never tapered before, I’m not sure what to expect, but I have to admit I’m a little nervous.  Many of the runners I know or follow seem to go a bit stir crazy during a taper.  I can certainly understand since I know I find it hard to fathom that I’m actually going to decrease my running for two weeks.  Since I started last September, I’ve focused on building my fitness and mileage slowly, but steadily.  Now I need to turn that part of my brain off and ease back.

BTW, I’m loving my new running shoes.  I knew you were concerned.
