Jeff’s Post – Wow – Is This How the Other Half Lives!
I’m in the midst of another taper and this one really feels different from the one I had about a month ago. When I was preparing for my first marathon the taper week freaked me out a bit. I didn’t really embrace it. I was nervous about my upcoming race, I was nervous about my reduced mileage. I guess looking back I was a bit more of a wreck than I originally thought. But you know it all worked out and I became a Marathoner!
Fast forward a few weeks and I’m in the midst of taper #2. This morning I slept in, answered some work emails, cleaned up a few things around the house and found time to write this post. Wow, I’ve been running hours almost every morning since January. I guess this morning I’m finding out how the other half lives. Don’t interpret this the wrong way, I’m a runner and need to run. If I don’t run I tend to be in a bit of a funk all day so I’m not changing my ways but I have decided to embrace my taper.
I’m starting to really get excited about Richmond. I’m still a bit nervous. My legs have felt tired the last couple weeks so I’m taking some extra rest this week. I’m working hard mentally this week to head to “The Zone”. I want to be in “The Zone” on Saturday.
Have a great day and if you are in the midst of a taper – embrace it!
