Had considered a zero day today, but only briefly. Though it's important to rest up in the taper period here, I thought the benefits of shaking the legs loose with a barefoot recovery run would do a lot more good. I was right, as it felt good to shake off some light creakiness resulting from yesterday's long run.
Warm out (80 degrees) but very low humidity (~30%), which actually felt very nice. Time for a nap.
Ran 3.4 miles @ 9:03/mile pace.
Around 80 degrees, sunny.
Barefoot, shorts, short sleeved shirt, cap.
