Whew! Survived my first race of the fall season and didn’t even cry once. How’s that for good beginnings? (Race recap to come, of course.)
This week: tapering for the National Capital 20 Miler. Last week: tapering for the aforementioned Navy-Air Force Half. Let’s roll the tape:
Sunday | rest
Monday | ran 9.01 miles on the treadmill in 1:30
In retrospect I may have pushed this a little too hard for a taper. Thoughts?
Tuesday | walked 2.08 miles outside; 75 minute ballet class
Wednesday | ran 7.07 miles in 1:15
Realized about halfway through my run that I was wearing the wrong sneakers. These were the most recently retired. Oh well; one more gentle-ish run shouldn’t hurt.
Thursday | walked 2.12 miles outside; 75 minute ballet class
Friday | ran 4.38 miles on the treadmill in 50 minutes
Saturday | rest
Walked a bunch, though – to the Metro and back for the NAF Half race expo, although said expo was pretty lackluster. Cramped and hardly any vendors. I did snag myself a hoodie, which is too large as it is designed for men but the women’s version was much thinner and I ain’t about a less fleece-y life.
So that’s that. Roundup time!
