Today as part of my taper week I "only" have to run 8 x 200m with 2min recovery
I feel soooo good and bursting with energy this taper week is definitely having the right effect.
I was supposed to run at 75% and I didn't I ran harder, not quite 100% but not far off, now I have the opposite problem - when I need to work harder I sometimes hold back and now I need to work less hard and I can't hold back!!!
Anyway splits were as follows (ran out and back so up and downhill slightly)
Reps 1 – 3 – 5 – 7
44s / 41s / 39s / 40s
Reps 2 – 4 – 6 – 8
46s / 43s / 41s / 40s
Also having deep tissue sports massage this afternoon as part of my taper / race preparations for Sunday :)
