AM-4 miles on 7th with 4x1:20 on/off equal recovery. (28:17)

About 90 degrees plus again this morning. Experimenting with a drastic taper which is based on a study by East Carolina University. It involves a drastic mileage cut combined with 5k intensity intervals starting at 8x400m and decreasing each day in number as the taper progresses.

AM-3 miles on 7th with 4x1 minute pickups at 5k effort. Got up early and started a scriptural daily devotional of sorts. Glad I did because it really helps to put things in a good spiritual perspective for the day.

Took today off to tie up some loose ends with school and related items.  I can't believe it either but I'm actually going back to school again to advance my education.  Wow.. I feel like I've been tipped over and shook down until everything including my loose change has been taken.

AM-Tough day out there with the usual cramp up on the right hamstring and PF during a race or faster run. Not all to blame however. I'm just not in the kind of shape I used to be in. I'm giving the taper experiment a thumbs down by the way. I really didn't feel all that sharp today.  Going to review some things and go back to work.

Ran with Sasha and Benjamin for warm up and cool down. These guys not only keep me on my toes running but also mentally. We had some good discussion on HTML coding and related programming topics. Always good to run with these guys. Later on met up with the old Wasatch Athletics crew. Good to see them again as it's been a long time. Good times and good memories..

PM-No run.
