Here we are. In less than a week, I’ll run my marathon. I am definitely freaking out. Last week was okay, training wise. I missed a run and only did yoga once. But that’s what a taper is for, right?
On Monday, I went to yoga at lunch. I didn’t have any meetings and wanted to get out of the office. The class was semi-Chris Hadfield themed and it was awesome. I’m not feeling rested right now and that worries me. But it’s still early in the week.
Here’s what I have planned for this week:
Tuesday: easy 6k
Wednesday: 8km with last 2km at race pace
Thursday: easy 45 minutes
Saturday: 2-3k shake-out run
This seems like a lot for a taper week. I’m going to take it day by day, as feeling fresh on Sunday is the most important thing.

Congrats getting this far Erin. I’ll be thinking about you on Sunday!
I second the congrats! You’re almost there. 🙂 Have a safe trip out east and I’ll think happy marathon thoughts for you on Sunday! I’ve really enjoyed reading your training thoughts and it feels nice to “know” someone going through the same thing—thanks so much for sharing.
Thanks AM! We’ll see how it goes, eh? Good luck with your own marathon!!!
