Taper for Mankato has begun!

My 2 week taper has begun, so I cut out swimming this week.  I'll still do weights and Yoga this week, but only Yoga next week.  I've also reduced my running miles and will focus on tempo runs. 

My goal time is under 1:40, and I think I can do it.  On my Sunday long run (on the Gateway Trail) I did 10 miles at an average pace of 7:37, and I need 7:40's to hit my goal.  My last two miles were 7:08 and 7:13, so the big difference this time will be my ability to finish strong.
