So I looked around and came up with a taper from a 50 mile training plan. It has three rest days scheduled for this week and four for next week. That is 7 rest days in two weeks. I was looking back at the past four weeks and I took one rest day and that means that I ran (including stairs) 27 out of the past 28 days. I am not expecting any kind of grand explosion in performance at Grasslands from one month of consistent training. However, I feel that kind of consistent training needs to be the cornerstone of my running this summer, if I am going to see some real improvements in my running next race season.
