8 miles on Saturday and legs felt even better than they did on Thursday, there may be something in this taper lark. Found it hard to keep my speed down to 9mm, partly because my legs had perked up and partly because in my head it was a short run.
8 miles at 8:50 mm even though I did keep slowing myself down apart from where the Garmin started under reading the speed in some heavy tree cover, I was practically sprinting trying to maintain speed by the time I popped out of the trees. I'd forgotten it did that.
For some reason on Sunday I had a complete attack of the CBA's, it was too hot for doing intervals but I never managed to get on a bike either. Think I was possibly taking taper a bit too far.
