Thanks everyone! Great advice--I think I'll do a short 3 miler tomorrow and take the rest of Thursday and all of Friday off. I'll post results and pics :)

I had a nice PR at my last 10k despite intense heat... I took Friday off (the race was on Saturday) - I might have ridden the bike, but definitely no running. To be honest, I sort of forgot the race was coming up and I was doing my normal routine, even ran a 15 miler the weekend before. So, the short answer is one or 2 days is probably sufficient!

I always do a nice easy run on Thursday (if my race is on Saturday) and take the Friday totally off.

I wish you well!

I have a 10K this Saturday and I'm a bit worried about my tapering. I was going to take two days off without running but still do some walking or elliptical...maybe biking. I totally bonked in my last 10K from fatigue and the heat but PRed in my 10K before that after taking only one day rest before the race. I don't want to be sluggish on Saturday but I definitely don't want my legs to feel tired either. Any suggestions?
