Taper terrific

Wow!

Four days of no running does wonders for the legs.

With the temperature hovering around 81 degrees, I took off for my 7-mile group run with the Luke's Locker folks this morning.

I felt real strong the entire time. At one point, I looked at the Garmin and it said my pace was 6:50-something. I wasn't breathing hard. Didn't feel like I was laboring.

For most of the run, I was striding (and able to talk a little) with the 7:30 milers until between mile 5 and 5 when THE BIG HILLS came up out of nowhere.

Still, I finished the run in a about 54 minutes, which is a pace of about 7:43. I was not huffing and puffing at the end.

Too bad I can't take four days off before every run.
