So here I am beginning my taper. I remember reading about this and looking forward to running fewer miles. Now that it is here I am feeling anxious and hangry. What is I lose my fitness level the next three weeks? What if I continue to eat like I am running 20 miles a day?
Hello! How are you all doing? I am great. I am still trying to wrap my mind around the fact that I am 15 weeks into my training somehow. A big part of me is disappointed that I am not 30 lbs lighter as I had secretly hoped I would lose 2 lbs per week
Why hello! How are you? I am ok-I have been a terrible blogger. Life gets in the way every now and again. So I shall do a quick re-cap here. Luckily, since I am essentially from 80’s I keep a planner where I keep track of my workouts and make crazy notes. Week 11- This
Monday 7 miler- I was slow to motivate, but eventually got my ass off the couch and really enjoyed my 7 miles. I pre-gamed with cracklin oat bran, strawberries and coffee. Perfect amount of food! It was sunny and cool, perfect for running. My time was 9.30 splits which I was STOKED about. I did
