Tapering. Sucks. Nuf’ said.
This week is all about resting, staying healthy, and preparing my mind and body for the 13.1 miles I will run on Sunday. I’ve gotten mixed opinions about tapering for the half: some say it isn’t necessary, some say to taper for two weeks out. I settled with a one week mileage cutback – giving myself plenty of recovery time.
I get to run 3 miles tomorrow ….. And I’m sure you can tell I’m really looking forward to it!! I haven’t gotten all batshit-runner crazy at this point (as some runners make it look)
But I have been a teensy bit on the grumpy side! Thankfully my boyfriend is super supportive and not taking offense to moodiness.
In other news, here are two things that are keeping me somewhat distracted from running and happy.
One: We got most of our Christmas decor up already!
Two: Steven and I made a filling pumpkin soup for dinner, using this recipe! It was fantastic and I definitely recommend trying it out if you have the taste for fall like I do!
Have a good night everyone!!
No question for today…. But I am soliciting for any free, last minute advice for preparing for my first half!
