3 weeks out. Is the hay in the barn? (Read 563 times)

    Did 22 this morning on the Stones River Greenway and Shelby Bottoms.  The taper begins today. 

    The tangents are moot.

      There is no hay. I am screwed.

      How do you keep your feet on the ground, when you know you were born to fly?

       

      Just a girl who runs.


      In it for the long run..

        I do a 2 week taper, so next weekend is my 18-20 miler.  I did 10 in Monkeyville this morning and it was pretty tough.  Not sure how I am going to survive a marathon there!

          the Persimmon flavored asshats are in the barn, two more big weeks then the taper.

              Fuck. I'm hoping a 60+ this week will salvage a sporadic fall. Of course, with my work sked, this is all but most certainly undoable.

               

              22 - nice job, Dallas. The last time I ran that far was part of a marathon in August. Dang.

                Last 5 weeks - 32, 46, 49. 45, 51.

                 

                I've all but given up hope of winning it this year...but there's still 3 weeks to train.

                  I have a trail 50k on 11/14.  Then the taper begins.  I start training tomorrow.

                      Does eating pounds of Holloween candy count as putting hay in the barn?

                       

                      I also do a 2 week taper, but the 3rd week I just try and not do anything really stupid.

                       

                      But ... Friday, I caught my little toe and only my little toe on something and its all black and blue and painful ... Hopefully its the only stupid thing I decide to do.

                        Okay, I feel better now. Carry on.

                              True

                               

                              After 20 minutes of running the pain is replaced by numbness ... unless I run fast ... then it hurts again

                               

                              I really do not see it as a problem ... I was just complaining.

                                This sounds like what Deanna has been dealing with for years.  May not be the best way to do it, but she taped up and ran the monkey last year.
