Week 15 of 16
“I’m on the right track baby, I was born to be brave.”
I am one week away from the Boston Marathon. That’s 7 days. SEVEN! Can you believe it?
On Monday I followed Greg’s plan with lighter weight but the strangest thing happened. I had a set of walking lunges to end my workout but I couldn’t do them! My quads were cramping. Practically shaking. I called it quits and went for an easy 3 mile run.
I didn’t run on Tuesday but all day and night my legs were SO SORE to touch. I was freaking out so I set my alarm 30 minutes early to #NormaTecAndChill before work on Wednesday. I skipped my workout on Wednesday out of fear and hopped on the treadmill for 4 more easy miles.
I didn’t run again on Thursday. I woke up Friday morning feeling good but totally lazy. Rain was in the forecast for the afternoon but it was so cold in the morning. I was not in the mood to bundle up so I went to the gym for a treadmill run and light workout instead.
The laziness continued on Saturday. I ONLY had 10 miles on the schedule but I didn’t want to do it! I talked to Joe yesterday and he felt the same way. Taper is nice… but I take it way too seriously. Couch and Gossip Girl FTW.
I finally did get my butt moving and got the job done in Cotuit but only because I had a date with Anejo that afternoon. 15 weeks down, 1 week to go!
