We are less than 2 weeks from race day. To me, that is where I begin counting down.
I've read so many articles and listened to a myriad of podcasts lately about running and tapering and getting ready for race day. I've gained a lot of really good info and tips. I am absorbing whatever information I can get at this point.
I am officially into the taper zone. The mileage is coming down as the resting goes up. Well mostly down. I still plan to run 10k 3 mornings this week but that has become my routine and I look forward to it. Next weekend will be the first weekend where my LSD run is going to be under 20km. And the last 7 days before the marathon, there will be virtually no kilometres. *GASP*
I have had every opportunity to push my body to it's limits. Push my mind to it's limits. All those weeks of long training runs. Practising with fueling, recovering, podcasts/music....OMG the list is so long.
If I haven't figured out how to do it now, I never will.
