A run with Emilee to start the day! 7.48 miles @ 8:25 average, and today is the last Wednesday workout before the marathon!
Always the hardest decision in the morning. They are all too good to choose from.
I’m usually feeling a bit of the taper crazies, but this time, I am living my best life with the taper. I am thoroughly enjoying the drop in mileage and intensity. I feel like other tapers. I have used my extra energy to clean the house or organize, but not this time; I’m thoroughly enjoying having more time to do absolutely nothing.
It’s that time in the taper where I watch Youtube videos about inspirational runners each night before bed.
Lauren showed me Featherstone Nutrition Carb Loading Calculator. It’s awesome. I will keep track of my carbs and hit the recommendation for me (465 grams a day for three days) next week leading up to my marathon. Go HERE if you need carb-loading tips, ideas, and motivation for this leading up to a race!
Andrew and I have been discussing today’s most random question –> What is the most catchy jingle for a company/product?
-KitKat. I hear that jingle once, and then it will be stuck in my head for two days.
Any inspirational clips that you like to watch leading up to a race (send me the link:)?
Something you are very talented at procrastinating?
Ever tracked your carbs leading up to a race? Any tips you would add to the carb load?
-For Boston I just ate as many carbs as I could for the two days leading up to the race and it worked out great but I’m excited to try out 465 grams a day!
