A: When it’s a tapir.
A: When you really need to get a grip and STOP RUNNING GINA.
I ran 6 miles this morning. In my defense, the plan said 7. In accusation, I could easily have done 4.
My plan seems to have a 2 week taper, rather than a 3 week one. Is this ok? I feel good, but I know I need to slow down. There are 31 miles in the plan for next week, then 10 the final week. Too much? Help!
