Last long one...

  I have run a 16 miler for 7 out of the last 8 weeks. Today I covered 16.55 miles in 2.5 hours. Pretty strong for me! The body is adapting. My back and butt are a little sore but I'm old! What do I expect! Still, the body is an amazing thing! I will recover and be stronger.
   So I will continue this week as normal and try to post around 40 miles total. Then next week I'll cut down considerable and hope to be strong and rested for the race on the 23rd. In the past I've tapered to long and early. This time I'm going to taper for one week. I'll see what happens...any input is greatly appreciated!
  Hope all is well with you! Peace!
