Peace and Taper

Well, things are coming around running-wise. A sense of peace descended on me today - peace of life, not just with running. My taper is going well. This decrease in mileage has been like cutting my drug-use by more than half; like going cold turkey after years of straight cocaine usage (or so I imagine; like going from 2 packs a day to none. Bad comparisons, but the chemical change is palpable after going from 17 miles a day to 7 or 8 miles per day. But I am at peace. I am in a good place right now. Yesterday, I felt awful - my body ached, everything felt weak, but today I feel strong and sturdy.

SU: 9 miles, easy/moderate
M: 8, easy

Life is good friends. God bless.
