Well, the weekend is over, I'm officially tapering. I've mentally gained 5 pounds the last two days (physically probably only gained 4....) and I can run only a 13 minute mile but things are all good:) Ah-taper madness!!!
The weekend was GREAT around these here parts! It included such things as
I hit the can 9 out of 10 times and therefore I WON (which is all that matters)! We will not mention that my husband shoots from about a mile behind me when he takes his turn-ha!!
Other weekend news:
While spectating this 5K, I was also clock watching and thinking of Amanda running the Newport Marathon!! Congrats to her on comfortably qualifying for Boston in a conditions that simulated a sauna!! A mental test, a physical test. She PASSED!!! Excellent time she ran, but mark my words....this girl has not even tapped the running keg yet!
Also, on Saturday "Incognito Raina" went on a fun little joyride that resulted in a sub 20 5K PR and she hasn't even been doing speedwork!!! (OK-I now see she updated her blog so I'll drop the incognito-If I should EVER run sub 20, my blog would be updated before I drank water in the finish chute-ha!) Congrats Raina! You are amAZing! We will all be seeing 18's (this summer or fall even) when she decides to actually train for a 5K!!!
SUAR busted out 3rd in her AG in her sprint tri! SUPER awesome!! I just KNOW how great this feels for her after rehabbing not one but two nasty injuries. SO SO happy for her!!
Jill, broke her defibrillator, or debilitator, or derailleur or "thingie" as I call it. Super bummed out for her and hoping that she has a chance to get back out there in the next couple of weeks....
Many other racers that I haven't had time to catch up with yet!! Excited to read reports!
SOOOOO-this long post should end but I will be posting likely later tonight my taper schedule and my race strategy as of today. I have 12 days until my race so probably 12 strategies coming-ha! Happy Monday ALL!!!!
