    Rich, and you're cutting back.

     

    I'm pretty sure this is the most miles I've done in a week.

    Tuesday - 6.5

    Wednesday 10

    Thursday - 6

    Saturday - 4

    Sunday - 13.1

    Total 39.6

     

    Time to taper for my 10K...

    Yeah Ray, I've read about a gazillion (is that a number?) articles on how to taper for a marathon and they're pretty consistent.  Cut mileage to 80% the first week, 60 the second and 30 the week of the race.  I actually feel pretty good right now, but am looking forward to the reduced mileage that's finally here...lol

     

    Nice week, btw.  You didn't mention your half, did it go as expected?
