Hay in the Barn

So week 6 is done (almost) and I've only just completed a run longer than the 1/2 distance - which is a little disturbing. Last week's Earlgasm really messed up my distance run plans. To summarize: I did 14.5 miles today in 2:10:30 - about a 9 min/mile pace. I ran from my house, to GLP, mumford's cove, bluff point - did the loop there and then came back. The trails were great - temperature was perfect for this time of year. Still my distance runs are: 11.6, 8.2, triathlon, 12, 10 and 14.5. I feel as though I may do another 14. 5 next week - that be 9 days before the race. Is there really a point to tapering before that?

Yesterday I did pool work. A little different this time. Warmup: 1x200; 1x50 (back and breast). Then I did 1x400; 1x50 (back and breast); 4x100 (breadth every 6, 5, 4 and 3). The 100s felt hard. Cooldown. Shorter total distance but those 100s crushed my lungs...
