My sixth marathon (technically, it's my third ultra) is happening in less than a week! Am I scared? (not really) Do I feel prepared? (yes!) Will you allow me to take a bow?
Although it was a substantial scaled-back week (regarding mileage), it still was busy. Here's what went down:
As usual, Monday called for my #nevermissaMonday routine. With my 20-miler a day prior, I spent the majority of Monday in recovery mode, and just did a simple 1-mile run to shake out the legs. I ran after work, and the run felt effortless. Mission accomplished.
|Yes, I did wear the compression socks to work (incognito under my pants)|
|Yes, I"m "riding" the taper|
|43-degrees, and I left the gloves at home and felt fine without them (???)|
And, let's not forget the #Fridayfashion post on Instagram
|Got needles? Leaves? I'm your gal.|
In other news...
It's with a great deal of pride that we celebrated Veteran's Day. My husband, my father, and my late father-in-law all served our country. We owe our vets a great deal more than just a simple "thanks."
