In 10 days I run my first (and only?) marathon, in honor of
Which means, this week I get to taper! My knees are thanking me. I had a minor overuse injury, but luckily my best friend is a doctor of physical therapy and she set me back on track a few weeks ago. Seems to be doing well now, but yeah, taper all the way!
The only trouble is that now my 3 mile runs feel like 8 mile runs, because it is stinking COLD out. I tend to function best when it is 70 degrees out, not 7. (Ok, ok, it's not quite that cold; I think today was a whopping 20 degrees with a windchill of 9.) Even in $150 worth of super-warm running gear, I feel like a Popsicle by the end. I can't wait to get to FL and be warm again!!! Bring on the sun!
