Great news: My trail is back!!! I ran on this trail every single day last summer and every single weekend up until the first week of December. Oh how I've missed thee. ;)
The thing about tapering is that when you see 'Just 4 miles' on your schedule for your Saturday run, you sort of question the distance and panic a little. And then you secretly fear that you will forget how to run if you are not logging upwards of 10 miles the day before your long run. ;) Either way, my drizzly 4 miles felt stellar.
Last long run before B-Town! A big whopping 10 miles. This used to be my mid-week mid-distance run and also my Saturday semi-long run before I'd do 20 miles the next day! But not during Taper Week.
I've been really wanting to try Kris' oatmeal & PB concoction for some time now, but to be honest, I kept forgetting! Not on Sunday. ;) Basically I made my Oatmeal with chia seeds and then put one huge dollop of PB in it. It was super YUM! Try it!
Another fabulous run along the Rails to Trails today. AND it was sunny!
After a quick trip to harass the Pharmacist at the drug store, I left with this.
Despite feeling absolutely crappy, I headed to my super duper early Physio appointment. I feel like my PT was thinking "After all this work we've put into your legs, feet and knees, NOW you're going to decide to get sick?!?!?" LOL. He's pretty confident I'll kick this bug to the curb in a couple of days. Here's to hoping!
Getting 'sick' is super frustrating for me, especially now. I've trained my butt off for 17 weeks, taken preventative measures, ate super healthy and avoided sick people like the plague. I've not been sick since the fall but as Murphy's law for Runners would have it, this is my week. :S
Hmm, I'm pretty sure I can tick off each and every single one of these now. :(
Lola napped with me as a part of my recovery. <3
There was also a lot of FRIENDS watched today.
I'm so glad you came to visit GGR today!
What are your cold remedies???
Have you ever experienced the Taper crazies???
