Who would have known that my final post on my old blog was HELLO, GOODBYE!
So strange...and yet, so true.
Here is the same old me,
the same old packaging,
starting afresh and keeping it real.
Will my OLD FRIENDS find me??
I'll be back to checking your blogs and training this week, At any rate, here I am once again. Cheese!
Boston Crunch Time is here!
No more tempos, no more long runs, no more rigorous training, just a whole lot of down time,
I'm trying a new taper strategy this time around. I have found that I NEVER stick with the same thing for any marathon and this one has been NO DIFFERENT!
As per MARATHON TALK, , last Wednesday's episode, I'm trying out the following tapering calendar:
Reduced last week's mileage by 25%!
This week back up to 75% of total mileage.
Final week before the marathon, reduce to 30%.
I like this experiment because I always arrive on marathon day feeling slightly flat from reducing the mileage so drastically.
I'm hoping this new experiment works, we will see very shortly, won't we?
Hmmmm...these will NOT be a secret but they are still under wraps for now. I'm feeling confident and ready for this race and really excited to push it to the limit.
This will be my last Boston unless BS qualifies in the fall.
It's up to you Babe!
