j and i are in the tapering phase of our marathon training and have crossed over the 20 mile peak of last week and are in the double digit decline... it is interesting to have to work through little aches and pains during our runs and i think that my body (overall) is appreciative of the rest. i am working to stay strong so that we can finish strong in exactly two weeks! let the countdown begin!
j and i finished our 20 mile run last saturday (woo!) and now we are on to the few weeks of tapering before our oct. 19th race! hooray. i did a 5 mile run on tuesday and was a little bit sore when i finished (guess my muscles were still going "what the heck?!" from sunday) and i have a 10 miler tomorrow. above all- the weather here is perfect for running. absolutely gorgeous!
