I think I needed a real rest this week .
The week before last I did 40 klm - last week was the first week of my "taper" and was going to do 20K but life got in the way a bit and I only did 17K . This week I was going to do 10K in the seven days leading up to my HM on Sunday -- but I decided to cut it right back to a 5K on Wednesday and a 3-4K walk on Friday.
I never ever get sore calf muscles -- at least not on the immediate days after a run but this week, I have been feeling some twinges. At first I was a bit concerned, but now I am starting to feel that this is good and it will be good to be totally rested on Sunday.
How many here have had a VERY quiet week before a weekend long race?? Or did you keep on at it right up to the race??
