I was supposed to taper my running this week, but I couldn't keep off the road/trails.

Monday - 5 miles
Tuesday - 4.5 miles
Wednesday - 2.7 miles

I will need to force myself not to run the next two days. I need to mow the grass anyway!

Yesterday's run was at Stanky Creek on the Yellow loop in my Five Fingers. This was my first technical trail (I don't consider the Tour as technical) in VFF's. All in all, I felt very light and nimble and had no problems with all the roots, rocks, hills, and switchbacks. My pace averaged slightly over 12 min/mile which is OK for this trail (for me anyway). I did have a small blister form on the outside ball of my right foot. The blister was not that painful and I initially planned on running the blue loop also, but I did not want to create more problems before this weekend's marathon.
