Nothing much happening as I finish off my second taper week with 42 miles in the bag so I though I'd share this interview with Tony Mangan in Brush Colorado 5 months in to his 3 year round the world jog - setting out from Dublin following the 2010 marathon and on target to return for the 2013 event. He's running a minimum average of a marathon a day for 1,000 days - makes Connemara seem like a 100m dash.
My paces this week have picked up as the volume reduces. Conscious of the fact that I need to reduce the stress on my legs I made sure and took it easy this morning - still the 120 HR gave me close to 8 minute miles - roll on Connemara.
