Weekly Wrap....March 12
Here we are again for the weekly wrap!
Sunday: 10 Miles on the Tread Mill ( which I actually already reported last week). Afterwards I felt like all I did for the rest of the day was eat and snack, and eat, and snack. I know I did burn a lot of calories on that run but geesh, I must have been hungry. I did have a product day though. I watched some of my favorite movies, did some laundry, graded some papers, did house work and put my new Spring door mat and wreath on the door. That was the first time all day I went outside. I was kind of bummed that it was so nice out and I missed it. I could have done my run outside instead of on the TM.
Tuesday: 3 TM miles
Wednesday: Rest. I discovered that Baylee hides in my bathtub when I am not home. When I got home that afternoon I caught her jumping out of the tub knocking over the shampoo bottles. I now know why things are disheveled in my bathroom.
Thursday: 3 mile run outside. Funny Story: While I was taking my post run shower, Baylee paid me a visit and decided to jump in the shower. I don't know what is up with her lately. She must be claiming that as HER spot.
I can't believe this is it, my last weekend before NYC! To be honest, I'm really not sure how to taper since this is the first half marathon in which I haven't been injured during training. I was thinking about doing 6 miles today but honestly I'm feeling a bit under the weather and just may skip it ( the past few weekends I've done 13.1, 13.1, and 10 miles). I also planned to run one or two other 3 milers sometime during the week before I leave for NYC. Do you think that is good enough?
Even though I'm nervous, I'm extremely excited and I'm actually feeling strong. Of course I'm not making any goals for this race because I know there are just too many things out of my control (crowds, hills, weather, nerves, etc).
I bought a new outfit this weekend for the race. I wanted something other than my black or grey pants so Scott would have a better chance of spotting me in a crowd. Turns out that I probably won't have an opportunity to test out these clothes before race day so I probably won't wear them. I guess I'll be running in my boring black or grey pants. The temps for the day (so far) are low of 40 and high of 50. Of course during the race I'm sure it will be closer to the 40's than the 50's. I'm still torn on what to wear. Will just a long sleeve running top and a throw away be enough? What would you wear?
There probably won't be a Weekly Wrap for next week but I will try to post on IG (@fairytalesnfit) if you care to follow along and show support! This weekend Lacey will also be racing. She's running the Shamrock Marathon.
What do you think of my mileage plan (and skipped run) for this week? M
We are linking up with Holly and Tricia for the weekly wrap.
