50k Taper Plan

Workout:

(Tuesday) 

6 miles easy...but felt hard

I ran 10 miles last week. I have grown accustomed to covering that mileage in one day, not one week. However, I was (and still am) recovering after one of the hardest marathons I've ever run, and dealing with minor injuries to boot. After an amazing weekend full of hiking and camping on the Appalachian Trail (more about that in another post), I came back to Philly feeling healed and rejuvenated, yet still not 100%.

Hiking on the AT

Since I started my taper for the Dirty German 50k this week, I figured I would post my plan for those who are interested.  Though the taper itself is 3 weeks, the plan below technically started last week, including a recovery week from the trail marathon.

If you notice, I'm incorporating a weekly Vinyasa yoga practice on Mondays to help prevent injuries through flexibility, and build up my core strength. The other reason is because I know when I decrease my miles, my anxiety and stress go through the roof. Yoga is a low impact way for me to combat this. 
I know tapering is a necessary evil if I want my legs to feel fresh for my goal race, so I will suffer through the mood swings, weight fluctuations, and random pains that often arise during this time. Luckily, I will have a lot of  social events to distract me over the next few weeks, and likely more cocktails than trails. Cheers!
