Hyper taper

Countdown to my first HM!!
I'm 5 days away and just did my last "speed" workout last night; it was an easy 4-miler through some very dark streets. A group of us got a bit disoriented so we ran as a group and made some fun out of it.

I felt great, in fact I'm just about bursting with energy so it was good to shake out my legs a bit. My coach suggested that I take all my runs easy this week but don't just sit there...I think this is perfect advice as I do feel the need to burn off some excess excitement!

I'm enjoying the new experiences that training for the HM brings. I've been running for over 25 years and I've never really tapered before but I'm finding myself charged up and rarin' to go!

    Thanks for visiting my blog today. I wish you well on your upcoming HM!
    I love your mind/body thoughts mentioned on your page. Good problem solving techniques surely will come in handy if you are a runner. We sure do get our share of problems with this sport, and solving them rapidly will only help you improve.

    Best wishes to you. Can't wait to read all about it. Have a great time. It's wonderful that you are bursting with energy!!!

    It's 11 days until my first HM! I belong to a Galloway group but don't have a coach as such, but do have the program director to rely on and several Galloway books. Ran 14.33 miles last Sat; plan to run short this weekend, and not too hard on my 2 regular runs. I'm not bursting with energy, but feeling pretty strong. Looking forward to it.

    Be sure to trim your toe nails!! and do all those last minute things so you feel comfy. Take care. Know I'm with you in spirit!! -Marsha
