Thomas--First few taper periods are odd. Then the sensation gets more familiar. AND you get your life back for a few weeks. Ocelot--You go, man! Staying consistent will enable your body to make changes it needs. Sam--Don't forget Boston is a tougher course and will add a few minutes to your time. 7mi this morning and 7mi this afternoon in Arlington, VA as I try to work out the kinks from the 14+ hour flight back on Monday.
Yup, great to see new members posting on their running exploits! No email access over the weekend, in Macau. On Saturday did 7mi including 3 x 1mi at 90% effort, and Sunday 10mi including 7 x 1mi @ 90% effort. This morning 7mi (feeling kinda stiff for the first 3 miles following the 14hr+ return flight Monday. This afternoon 5mi and a strength session at the Y.
Ten miles this morning and a strength workout at the Y. Biking 16 miles this afternoon to make up for the 8 miles of running I missed yesterday courtesy of long work day.

10 miles this morning and a strength workout at the Y. Sam--Wow, Buenos Aires! I ran the Grachtenloop 10-mile in Amsterdam a few years back and local TV station reporter grabbed me afterward because he knew I had traveled the greatest distance among all the participants. At the end of the interview he ripped through a line of Dutch (which I don't speak) and asked me to repeat it. After hammering a 10-mile race, I tried my best. After my fourth try he said thanks and left...
14 miles this morning. Now I get to apply my graduate learning to try and figure our how to operate this Polar heart monitor..
Sam--Sorry to hear about the layoff. As I've told more than one runner I've coached, there are lots of races but you only have one body. Fortunately you'll bounce back in a few weeks. Five easy miles this morning recovering from yesterday's hill repeats. Wore a string of ten jingle bells in addition to Santa hat and got lots of smiles and "Merry Christmas" wishes from those we passed. Realized bells' additional benefit as a training aid during the run: I got much better...
