Taper Week!

Hello Sweets,

I was some how able to pack a lot and yet absolutely nothing into my weekend. I am very excited to be entering TAPER WEEK! Wooo whoooooo!!! The 12 mile run the weekend before last reminded me too much of the actual race. I need some time to let my muscles recover and my mind to forget. Going into race day, it is nice to be a little ignorant as to what is waiting for you. This weekend's run was supposed to be 6 miles, but my knee has been bothering me so I wanted to take it slow. I shortened it to 5 miles (in order to convince HM to join me) and took it very easy.

So easy in fact, that I took a break at the turn around spot
If you are wondering why Buckley is looking away it is because he is embarrassed. His father took him to the groomers and did not give the groomers proper instructions. As a result, this is what we got back:
He does not want to talk about it, so don't ask
My run was about the only exercise I participated in  this weekend. Fine by me. I have BifG this morning and that is it for the rest of the week. I may sneak in a 2 mile run Wednesday. Perhaps.

The rest of my weekend was spent relaxing. HM and I are reading 1Q84 together and he was nice enough to download a copy for me and lend me his Kindle. I LOVE IT!

Afternoon lemonade and a good book? Yes please.
I have an iPad and I have read a couple of books on it, but I don't like the back light. The Kindle, however, is awesome! I may bring it with me on my vacation in September so that I don't have to carry so many books (I read a lot on a 2 week trip with train travel). For what it is worth Sweets, HM and I are loving 1Q84. It is a biggen (1000+ pages) so you may NEED a digital reader!

Plan on a lot of posts about old lady style workouts for the rest of the week. I will also let you know what I will be wearing on race day....once I decide.


  1. Enjoy a taper week before the race! I like the convenience of a e-reader but I can't do anything but a normal book!

  2. You are lookin' great, girly! Good luck next week.
