Taper time. Sort of.
With the San Diego Rock 'n' Roll Half Marathon in about three weeks and three more half marathons on the calender, there's really no such thing as taper time. Perhaps it's stagger time? If I were marathon training for SDRNR would be running the longest run of the training session this weekend, which would be a 20 miler, but since I'm opting for the half marathon it's another day at the office... sort of, but it's the kind of office I enjoy going to. There's no need to burn the candle at both ends.
