Waiting, Waiting

Distance: 14.8 km
Time: 90' 00" (exactly)
Rate: 6' 05" per km
Weather: sunny, temp 21 degrees, humidity 30%, wind strong from NW at 40 kmph
Week: 45.8 km
October: 159.15 km
Year: 3479.85 km

I am no good at this tapering , so this week is just as the title says, waiting. You can't really go out and do something too long or intense, so the fill in is easy as you can take no chances on the wheels falling off.
Nice day today except for the wind, so I trotted around near the river very carefully. I got back to the beach area at Pine Is, looked at the watch and still a couple of hours to fill in, so stood about in and out of the water for half an hour cooling down and scratched around in the sand. Forgot to take the spade and bucket.
There is a bit of unscientific logic to this part, blister prevention on Sunday. The sand is rough and probably so are my feet. Kicking up the sand removes any dry and soft skin, the newly exposed skin now has a chance to toughen up in the next 4-5 days, and hopefully that eliminates another possible problem that may occur on Sunday.
Weather forecast for Sunday is now 8-29 degrees, sunny. We could be in for a warm finish, so I may have a chance to catch a few late in the run.
