I’m a tired, tired lady. Some of it is from all this running. The rest is because I’m a teacher. I love what I do, but boy, is it exhausting! I’m also doing a lot of writing on the side…a novel maybe? But it’s just for fun…Bucket List fun.
I’m also a hungry, hungry lady. Again–all the running, I’m sure. I’m keeping my calories in check, but Lawd, have mercy, I wanna eat the world!
I ran after school with a co-worker/half marathon training buddy. We’ve only run together twice during our training. That wasn’t the intention, but it’s the way it worked out. That’s fine though, she’s much faster than me, and I hate feeling like I’m slowing her down.
I’m tapering this week. I ran 12 miles on Saturday, and then took Sunday and Monday off. Today, I only ran 2.5 miles. I’m planning on 5 tomorrow, 5 Thursday and 6-8 Saturday. Next week I’m thinking I’ll do 5 on Monday, 3 on Tuesday, 3 on Thursday, and then rest Friday and Saturday before the big race. I’m so excited. I feel very prepared. As long as I’m healthy, rested, and injury-free, I’ve got this!
Happy running! 🙂 Enjoy every step.
