Ok, so I haven’t written on here since the beginning of my marathon training. Well, it turns out that I’ve stayed injury free during this whole journey towards the Chevron Houston Marathon. This Saturday I’m going to run my last 20-miler and then start tapering.
I know — tapering now? Shouldn’t you have started tapering at the beginning of January? I missed a couple of long-runs (approximately 4 of them) since I caught the colds. However, I did an 18 miler last December 16th and completed a 20 miler last Monday which went pretty good.
So my marathon planning didn’t go as I wanted it to be but I’m happy and grateful I will be at the starting line and finish below 6 hours.
I am excited and scared: just 16 days left!
