The taper

I threw out my plans of doing another long run this Saturday and instead settled in for a 16 miler (supposed to be 15 but I was led astray). For some unknown reason this was a hard run that left me hurting more than the longer ones I have been doing. It may be because I took a few days off to try and heal up my aching leg due to the ongoing shoe issues (update: I returned the pair that was destroying my leg). Maybe I was just tired or maybe it was just one of those things. Who knows.

Now we enter into taper mode with only two weeks left to go. All I can do now is hope that the weather is nice on Patriots Day and that the run goes well. Definitely looking forward to it and am happy to be running a marathon again.

Happy Opening Day everybody!

  1. I'm glad you were able to return those evil shoes. It's very diffult to find the perfect shoe that fits. I ran 14.5 Saturday. I wanted to do more but I felt TIRED and did not want to destroy my body more that already is. For now please enjoy your taper and let the body heal. You will do awesome. Maria
