Tapering? Can't be time to be talking about that already, surely?
Bit of a mixed bag here. My f****** back has been playing silly buggers, with pins and needles in my hip, bum & thigh, so I binned my planned 16 miles on Wednesday and rested instead. Feeling a lot better today and did 6 miles this morning without anything going black and dropping off! I have a physio appointment booked for Monday. I'm now planning on doing 3 more long runs - 16, 18 & 20 - (with other bits of jogging in between, of course) and a two week taper. I have made my peace with the fact that LN isn't going to be pretty and it isn't going to be quick, but I am a stubborn old cow and so long as a limb doesn't fall off in the next 5 weeks, I'll be on the starting line. In other news, it appears my childcare cock-up has been fixed
We seem to be split into two camps - the "running like the wind" camp and the "if I was a horse I'd be off to the glue factory" camp.
6 miles in 56:57 this afternoon. Felt really good … for the first 3, and then I turned into the wind. Jeeeeez, that was good resistance training . Anyhoo, my back feels ok, so perhaps not quite ready for the glue factory just yet.
My big problem at the moment is that I have managed to completely balls up my childcare arrangements for LN weekend. I must have been looking at the calendar cross-eyed, because I was sure hubby wasn't working. Turns out he is, so I'm going to have to do some serious babysitting begging.
