Today the letter F stands for Friday’s eFFing Freezing Five Miler this morning at FIVE O’CLOCK.
Not sure why my legs felt like rubber. Not even lead – they just felt weird. I knew I was running slower than usual but since this was a “pace” run, I am okay with 10:00/mile pacing. If I could keep this up for the entire marathon, I am not sure what I’d do. Probably die immediately following.
Not sure what I’m going to do for my run tomorrow, other than just start running in one direction until I either 1) hit 20 miles 2) get hurt, dehydrated, etc. 3) die.
I am ready to taper. I still love running, but anything over 3 hours lately feels awful.
I also decided to give my iPod shuffle a spin in our fancy washing machine last week (idiot), so there will be no tunes for me unless I want to give in and buy another one today. I don’t run with music during the marathon, so I should probably just skip it.
Carb loading later with team /var/run later, perhaps the highlight of my day.
Long run recap here on Monday if I make it!
