Week 15 & 16: Mini Taper

I had to recover off the 25K I did last weekend and I was a bit surprised how banged up I got from that. It was supposed to be a marathon-pace effort run, which it was, but the course was a tough one and it took a bit out of my legs and caused a bit of a stink in one of my calves that would take better part of a week to iron out. The pace part felt great and I knew if I could just get my legs to cooperate come Patriots day I just might have a decent marathon. Might being the key word there.
I had one last long effort to squeeze in and I managed to do that on a Friday morning as I took the day off work to get in all the recovery aid.
