It seems like there are two speeds around here…full throttle red lined, or school zone. Go, go…no wait I need cuddles and a blanket. Chase me, chase me…I just need a book and water. The funny thing is it’s not always Sky saying those things. 🙂
Oh the taper, most runners hate it, but I love it. I’m usually ready for a break and rest. This training schedule though (mixed in with trying to fit normal life stuff in) is so busy. The miles may be less but it’s still more running per week than I actually have time for. It’s been a struggle. And, in an attempt to make it all work, I ran after fasting for blood work, and even though I had a little to eat before running let’s just say the results were not good. I’m fine, but I will never run on a fasting day again, ever.
I was not happy with how much this 5 mile trail run kicked my butt. I’m glad the rest of the afternoon/evening was full of relaxed cuddles and not much else. On a side note, don’t fast, eat very little, run in the sun, and then re-hydrate with more wine than water. Just don’t do it.
