Two more training runs

So I turned 58 on Friday. Naturally, I took the day off work and went for a run. It was the last longish run before my race on Saturday:

I was going to stop after exactly one hour, but I decided to finish off by going up the hill near where I live. I was happy with the pace.

Today, I started tapering down by doing a 5K run this morning. I’ll do one more on Tuesday and then rest until Saturday.

I wasn’t intending to run at a faster pace today, but I just did. I think I knew that I didn’t need to save as much in reserve, as I wasn’t going as far. I felt a bit dead at the 3K mark, but otherwise all is well. This is the best time of year for running – the weather conditions are ideal, especially if you go early in the morning.
