Long time no write.
All is fine here, I’ve just not felt much like blogging. I’m less than 10 days from my marathon and bloody exhausted. So far, I’ve not felt taper madness because all I want to do is nap.
I had a great final 22-miler on Sunday that was a 6 mile warm up, a half marathon around marathon goal pace then 3 mile cool down. It felt amazing and effortless, but I’ve been feeling it this week. Yesterday I had a kind of crap run that has me a little worried, so I’m going to take it easy the next week. I have a massage scheduled for today and I couldn’t be more excited.
My husband survived his Ragnar relay, and I’m annoyed he wasn’t more sore. He did great, though, averaging around 9:15/mile for his 16 or so total miles.
I’m trying not to think too much about the Wineglass Marathon and skipping right over to thinking about the fun half marathons have have scheduled for the rest of the year. I’m still headed towards my coaching certification and trying to meet the challenges of doing right by my coaching client. I do feel some general anxiety right now, but I’m trying to remember a little anxiety is ok and can be lived with.
I hope everyone is doing great and enjoying the beginning of fall!
