time to taper

I got in a 22 miler this morning. Me and a buddy went up to the Towpath Trail and ran it. Made at least 2 mistakes, first over dressed at the start. I should of adjusted sooner, was a bowtie type route we were running so went past car once. Second mistake was I forgot to use any body glide. 5 miles I can get away without it. NOT 22 miles. When we went past the car I put some on quickly but the damage was already done. My buddy has been doing more running then me but he crashed and walked it in the last couple miles, I had some bad calf cramps and did a run/walk alternating every 3-4 minutes to finish. But I got it done now im tapering till the Cleveland marathon. We went to the Winking Lizard after for a sandwich and Arrogant Bastard beer, great way to recover. Now I need someone to blame for the calf cramps.............
