This morning’s run…easy 6 miles with some quick sprints in between, 8:40ish overall pace. Felt good to knock it out and be done for the day!
Yesterday, I got armed with the flu shot…boom boom pow! Sickness stay far far away!
My arm was a little sore immediately after but other than that no side effects! I usually try to get the flu shot every year otherwise I always get sick (especially after the marathon, which is when your immune system is totally worn down!) so I want to make sure I’m taking the necessary precautions this year.
Since a few of you I know are also running MCM this year (yay!) as well as other marathons coming up I thought I would post some tips on tapering. It’s taper time around these parts, and I have to say that I couldn’t be happier to be scaling back the miles! I have been putting in the training, the long weekend miles EVERY weekend without fail, and am ready to get these legs fresh and ready for race day!
Good to remember:
The countdown clock is up…can’t wait to be flying high on a jet plane in the sky headed to one of my favorite cities…Washington D.C. baby! WOOT!!
