T minus one week to the race! I've in the tapering/obsessively-looking-at-weather-dot-com phase. I did six miles on Thursday and skipped Saturday's three-miler because it was pouring (I'd like to avoid running in the rain before the race - I'm afraid I'd get a cold or ear infection). Today was lovely, but I worked late, lost an hour because of daylight saving time and had a birthday brunch to go to. Sooooo my running schedule this week is:
Monday: 3 miles
Wednesday: 2 miles
Friday: 10-15 minutes
Sunday: 13.1 miles!
