Today is a rest day. I'm a little surprised at how sore I am from yesterday's run. I've read that during the taper, most runners experience some new muscle aches and pains, as the body is recovering and strengthening from all the training it's been put through. I'm hoping that's what I'm feeling, and it's not just me being a wuss! I like this quote of the day from Runner's World:
"Running well is a matter of having the patience to persevere when we are tired and not expecting instant results."
~Robert de Castella, World champion marathon runner
