A couple days out
Well we are a couple days out from marathon morning and the taper is in full effect. If you have never done a taper, it is a process to get your body back to “normal” before a big race. And this taper is going as planned, I feel fat, lazy, slow, out of shape, not soreness, and that is what it is supposed to feel like. Even though I feel like a lazy slow person, my running this week is minimal. Three miles on two days and then my last tempo run tonight of only 7 miles. It sounds different to say that my run is only 7 miles but for the people that know me, 7 miles is just another short run.
Well, next week is going to be a nice relaxing week in order to start my training for IM the following week. What a great way to start the IM training plan than in Hawaii! A week and a half before I fly out and I can’t wait. It will be so nice to see everyone again and to see my little Hawaii family. It has been way too long and great times should be had.
Have a great rest of the week everyone, and check Facebook for pictures from the race.
