This week starts the taper time, gearing up for the Chicago Marathon next weekend. What?!? It is next weekend already??? Wow, this training time has just flown by.
Tapering is kind of weird. You work so hard week in and week out, gradually increasing mileage, making our long runs longer. Now I feel like we are just sitting still. I have 20 miles of training left, over the next 2 weeks. No double digit runs, weird. Tomorrow I have 3 mile run, I haven't run that distance by itself in a loooong time. Sadly though, I think it is going to be hard. What I have learned for myself, is that it takes a while for my body to get into gear, usually about 3 miles. So this should be interesting. How about you? Does it take awhile to get into the groove?
Also, as part of Marathon vibes, I joined into Running Divas 10/10/10 Virtual 10K. I figure the last 10K (of my marathon on 10/10/10) I will need as much motivation/ inspiration that I can get. Best of luck to everyone in there 10K
Dont forget to enter my giveaway for an ALO bra. it ends on Friday.
