It's kind of hard to believe that I'm running my 2nd full marathon in less than a week! The training is done (except for 2 more short runs this week) and I'm as ready as I'll ever be.
Monday: RUN 3.2 watchless miles in the crisp, fall air.
Tuesday: A 60 minute massage. Dude. She beat me up so I'm totally counting it. I had DOMS for about 2 days.
Wednesday: RUN 4 mile progressive at a 9:37 pace. Where the heck is this speed coming from?
Thursday: BIKE 20 minutes. STRETCH/STRENGTH 25 minutes.
Saturday: RUN 12 miles in 2:09:xx (10:45 pace). I ran the first 8 with about an 11 m/m pace and then the last 4 with paces around 10 m/m. Crazy awesome 32* run and just what I needed going into race week.! Now, if the temperature can be in the mid to high 30s next Sunday, I'll be thrilled.
Sunday: NADA (maybe some rolling and such)
To paraphrase Forrest, taper is as taper does. I've had the usual sniffles, sore throat, aches, pains, etc. I've freaked out over my car not starting on Sunday - it now has a new battery after it left me stranded at the grocery store. I'm trying not to go stir-crazy and make my loves ones crazy in the process. So far, I'd say I haven't done a very good job on that front.
But, as for the running piece? I'm ready.
Training Tuesday: Next Stop, the Detroit Marathon!
