This abbreviated training plan has an abbreviated taper: 3 miles yesterday, 2 miles today, then done until Thursday morning. So my run today was super short and it ought to have been easy peasy. Just one problem though! I ate lunch (leftover chili) at 12:30, planning on a run around 3 (after the wind died down, but before the sun got low) but my schedule blew up and I found myself needing to get out for that run at about 2 or it wouldn’t happen. So, 2 miles with a belly still full of chili. Ugh. But I survived, the chili stayed where it should be thanks to a couple emergency walk breaks, and the run was done in 24:43.
So now I just chill and trust my training and hope for the best! Tapers are always weird, even tiny ones.
