Taper week!

It’s race day!

We got some snow and rain last night but it’s supposed to be clear this morning.  The only downside is the 14 mph winds… I’m hoping with so many bodies, we won’t notice it too much?!

The taper recap:

Sunday: 5 easy miles

Monday:  Barre + a short walk

Tuesday: 6.5 miles with 2 at goal race pace (6:59)

Wednesday: 4.75 easy (9:10 ave)

Thursday: 3 mile walk + running the school Scholastic Book Fair

Friday: 4 easy miles (8:45 ave) +8 – 4:30 running the book fair- my legs were so tired Friday night!!

Saturday:  off + more book fair

I am now the Book fair chair for our school and while it’s my favorite PTA event by far, it’s a lot to combine it with race week! I’m hoping my legs will feel fresh this morning.

I’m a little nervous about the roads being icy and the wind knocking me back … but no matter what happens with the crazy wind and cold, I’m determined to have fun and try my best!

What are the worst race conditions you’ve run in?

Are you watching the NYC Half broadcast this morning?

  1. Race conditions….well, there was that overnight 6-hour ultra (July 2015) that had 90-degree temps and rain (and an occasional lightning bolt)…. 😉 And, I’ve done several races in single-digit temps with wind and snow…. We get every possible weather condition in the Midwest (except hurricanes) LOL
