Ran six tonight with Bubbles. Tonight she was quite content. I am happy with the run as I ran well and had negative splits and kept MP+15sec with the stroller with not much effort. I do love the taper, but am now realizing how much of my stress I was burning during my running. My stress levels have radically increased the last week and a half. Part of the reason is my "situation" at work is getting much worse. I really felt the stress tonight in my arms and shoulders. I left a lot of thoughts about the garbage at work on the road tonight. I just have to remember that is where it is, not in my brain anymore.

Someone else on the blog (or maybe the forum) mentioned that body parts start to hurt during the taper that never did before. Well that is happening to me. Soleus in my right calf decided to let me know it was there the past few days. I've been stretching. Lately, I've been cautious about peroneus tightness on the outside of that calf, but never soleus. The tightness is peroneus was discovered by the massage therapist, so I have been stretching and making sure I run on both sides of banked streets. I see the massage therapist tomorrow.
