The most challenging aspect of running RIGHT NOW…is tapering. I will be in full “taper mode” for the next 6-8 weeks…
I am in the thick of taper blues… I have a busy schedule in the next 6 or so weeks.
- MO Cowbell Half Marathon – October 2nd (this weekend) – pacing 2:35
- KC Half Marathon – October 15th – pacing 2:55
- Rock & Roll St. Louis Half Marathon – October 16th
- Fit Foodie Run 10K – October 22nd
- Kansas Half Marathon – November 6th – pacing 2:45
- Longview Half Marathon – November 12th – pacing 2:55
While my body is used to having long runs on the weekend, I am trying to conserve a little more energy for my pacing weekends. I would rather have too much energy for my runners than feel sluggish…
This means that I shouldn’t be running as many miles each week…but that can be a struggle with the weather being AMAZING for running this week!
Somedays, there just isn’t enough time in the day…
These days, I would love to just run and run and run in the morning! But then there’s that whole “working” thing I need to get to, and on time! I would rather get a little sleep at night than get up in the pre-buttcrack of dawn to get a few extra miles…but then there is also that tapering thing (see above). Humph…
With the weather constantly changing, it is a flip of the coin if it will be nice or not for a run.
Morning runs are now needing long sleeves and I have stepped outside a couple times and needed to head back inside for an extra shirt. Whoops…
In the afternoon, again, it is a toss up if it is going to be warm/hot or chilly…so my #runch bag is quite full with a couple options…
