7:55 AP.  Taper week.  I always struggle during taper week.  Took it easy on my dirt roads at home and finally nailed the last .34 miles at 5:33 pace to get rid of the sluggish fat feeling.  It helped.  Looking forward to a little miniature track session tomorrow too put a little zip in my legs.  I am thinking the 5x1000 meters at half-marathon pace with 200 recovery as suggested by Bonnie.

I like Bonnie--she has good advice!

That 5:33 pace definitely qualifies as "zip." Think I might work in some brief fast stuff too, hate to get too used to easy pace.

good luck this week, april. relax, enjoy the taper and remember all the hard work you've put in. you're ready.
