It's race week, it's race week! (recap coming soon, I promise!)
It surprised me that "taper week" (not that there was much of a taper) didn't really bother me. I wasn't antsy, or feigning to run. I just kinda went with it.
On Monday I had a killer hill workout on the treadmill. I jacked the incline up to 10% and --wow-- that was some hill. That was the closest I've gotten to my Ragnar elevation change. When I finished, my legs were all loosey-goosey, but I felt like a total badass.
Tuesday I dragged myself out of bed and did my abs ad arms workout. I was really disappointed in myself for blowing it off last week. My body could tell that it had been a while and I was sore the next day. I decided that I wouldn't do it again on Thursday like I'd planned. I didn't want to risk being sore on Sunday for the race.
Friday morning, I went out for a few short and easy miles. It was my last run before Columbus. Friday night, Randy asked me if I was ready for Sunday. Actually, it hadn't really occurred to me, until that moment, to be nervous or consider that I wasn't prepared for the race. I decided to go with my instinct that of course I'm ready.
What will be, will be, right?
