Marathon Thoughts

Well....I haven't run since Tuesday.

It's Saturday am.

We're currently on our way to Arkansas.

Or "arrr-cans-ass" as I was told I'm required to pronounce it.

Maybe it was just the river I was supposed to say that way?

Oh well...either way. I'm headed to the Ozark territory.

I have my running shoes packed...but let's be's probably not going to happen.

I have a half marathon in 2 weeks. 2 weeks from tomorrow to be specific. And I'm taking time off.

(shaking my head)

I take this "taper down" thing pretty seriously!!!

What did you say?

I'm not supposed to flat out quit running....taper means just run less? is less...right?


OK then....since I have nothing on the running front to talk about....I thought I'd post a little video I saw recently.

Maybe you've seen it, maybe you haven't.....

I have sort of followed the same tapering plan you are currently on :) The video was funny.

Jen you probably need to take it a bit easy. But don't stop running at all, try to get some short ones in before your half.

Have fun in Arkansas.

Your taper sounds like one I'd manage to do.

My motivation seems to be returning... albeit gradually. I got a pain-free run in on Monday and am in hopes of another tonight!

Similarly to your "taper", my brain seemed to register that changing from a half to a 10k meant I no longer needed to run lol.

I love that video!!

Hiking in AR = super sore calves. Massage appt today, maybe a short run tomorrow or Friday...on the road this we'll see if I can get a run in later on Sunday. :-)
