This week . . . I will run less, trust my training and respect the taper.
Speedwork will be a 2x800 and 4x400 workout. Just enough to get the legs moving.
This week . . . I will eat for the upcoming race. Food is fuel and I will not fuel for 26.2 with a bunch of junk.
Yes to Mexican Quinoa
This week . . . I'll stick with flats. No use training for months only to get injured by tripping in a pair of heels. Sometimes function does trump fashion ;)
This week . . . I'll have "Roar" "Feel This Moment" and "We Can't Stop" on repeat. I'm not racing with my iPod, but I'll definitely listen to music on my way to the start line to get psyched up!
This week . . . I will get plenty of sleep. Early to bed, every night.
This week . . . I will decide on my race outfit. Obviously it will include my Oiselle singlet but the right shorts, compression socks and headband remain TBD.
This beauty helps a girl run her best ;)
This week . . . I will practice the mantras I've been using this year: "Believe" and "I breathe in strength, I breathe out weakness."
This week . . . I will take time to visualize the race. I'll imagine the inevitable rough spots that happen during any race - and how I'll push through them all for a strong finish.
This week . . . I'm counting down the days to this marathon. I'm so ready to race 26.2!
