And now I can 'taper'!

And now I can 'taper'!

Well I have done the last long run before the Day, and although it was tough it was actually better than last week. The stretches worked! Quite pleased with the time too. I went along the Grand Union Canal to Paddington and back again, lots to see, and tempting smells from cafes and food factories along the way- not to mention boat owners frying up bacon butties as I passed! So now it's taper time... And planning how to get there on the day, last minute begging emails for fundraising, etc. 

Hope everyone had a great run today if you went out!

Taper is the dreamy, luxurious time. Resting (ish) while eating and hydrating well. Enjoy it, while it lasts. Mwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhaaaaa 

Hats off to you for actually running the whole distance before the big day. I don't think I would

Hi Eatcakeandrun - I've also been doing a lot of my training for London up and down the Grand Union Canal - we've probably passed each other a few times.

Hey - Acton! we probably have! I have only recently been doing that particular stretch, usually I go towards Northolt and Southall, or I have been doing routes along the Thames path too.  But I have to say the path is nice for running along that bit towards Paddington. A couple of months ago I ran along the  Uxbridge road - along Acton High St itself, which was sadly not very pleasant on a Sunday morning after a Saturday night , if you get me.
