R - Really? 45-60 minutes? Can that be right?
E - Easy is really, really slow, right? Like 'granny shuffle' slow?
C - Come on, Greg (running master and creator of my plan). 45-60 minutes after a long run seems a bit much, no?

E - Exactly what week am I tapering again?
R - Right foot, left foot. Right foot, left foot.
