I have always thought it is crazy that after all of the miles and miles of training when you finally reach a point that you can begin tapering it is somewhat difficult and you long for what has become normal. Hanging on to these 50 plus mileage weeks over the past few months have been a challenge but I also know that dropping back to the 30 mile range is going to just be down right weird.
Over these next two weeks it will only be clean eating for this girl. No alcohol. No unnecessary sugar. No candy. This will be very difficult!! Now don't think I have gone completely off the deep end... this girl is not giving up her morning coffee. I have to have some comfort.
So in a nut shell I am getting my runs in. I am getting plenty of rest. I am scheduled for an hour massage to flush the legs on Thursday. I am ready.
