Well, I meant to gut it out for a 10-12-mile treadmill run, but in fact I am still with lung & head congestion enough that I called it quits after 6 miles. (Dreadfully hot and disgustingly slow, as usual!)
Week 16 has been a wash - literally! On the bright side, it was the first week of a three-week taper, so it is not the worst timing to have had an awful cold. I am glad I got in my last long run last weekend (although that run is also clearly the straw that broke the back of my immune system).
On the bright side, I saw a particularly prosperous rooster strutting around the parking lot in front of World Gym!
Week 16 recap: a meager 11 miles total, plus one masters swim. Talk about tapering...
