This morning marked my last “long” run before my 1/2 marathon next weekend.
It’s taper time — so doubts are starting to creep in …
Did I do enough mileage?
Can I actually PR?
I hope I don’t get sick….
….these are just a few of the thoughts swirling about my taper head.
I decide to push these thoughts aside for the time being and focus on something really important. Like, what I’m going to wear on race day.
I’m pretty sure I’m wearing these gems:
Jess and I set off for our usual 10 mile loop around Ferndale — although today we did the loop backwards (or the other way from which we normally go). It was a chilly 40 something degrees and the fog was keeping us company. About 1/2 way through, the sun was peeking out from the clouds and it looked to be shaping up to be an awesome sunny/chilly day. Our run went well and actually a little faster than we intended on running.
Total mileage: 10.31
Total time: 1:30
Average pace: 8:43
Thank you Jess – for another great run!
8 days to go!
