<p>I ended up not running last night.  I did, however, pick up probably several hundred pinecones and sticks from the yard.  That should count for something! :)</p>

<p>I didn't end up doing anything last night either.  And this morning I was pressed for time, so my 7 miler was cut down to just under 5.  No worries though - I am scheduled for 48 miles and will cut that down to closer to 45.  I know the in vogue thing these days is shorter taper, but I still believe in more rest is better and err on the side of a deeper taper. </p>

<p><strong>QOD:</strong>  What are your taper preferences (more or less)?  As I said, I tend to do more (as in a heavier taper and cut back around 20% each week for 3 weeks), but also tend to try to up the quality/pace as well.</p>
