Sooooooooooooooooo, you know how in marathon training schedules you’re supposed to taper……yeah……well I haven’t really done that. I ended up running a total of 12 miles yesterday, not that impressive, but considering I’m supposed to be tapering right now, probably not the best. But I’ve decided that I’m ok with it, I have more confidence going into this race having a few extra miles under my belt this week rather than not. Besides, it’s not like I’ve learned my lesson because I ran with my friend Eric last night.
This is my friend Eric, in the dark blue. Well….er… this is more my friend Eric.
His 5k is in the 15 minute zone, and mine is in the 25 minute zone. So when we run together after a long time a part we have a tendency to… shall we say… forget? How fast/slow the other is. We ran 3.5 miles together yesterday and his “jog” is my race pace.
Haha when I apologized for being so slow he said; “That’s ok I wanted to run slow today.” He’s nothing if not adorably honest.
Anywho, it was lovely catching up with him because we are both busy. He always gives me a good workout if nothing else when we run together and it was officially my last run of the week before Sunday. So I wouldn’t want to spend it any other way besides running with my friend. So that’s kinda it for now. Countdown: 3 more days until Placid.
So I’ll give you a final update tomorrow before a few days of radio silence. So until later TTFN.
