Extreme Taper

Well, in just over 36 hours we’ll be driving to the course, hoping to not be carried away by the Flying Monkeys.

My taper has definitely been extreme. Thanks to many, many issues, I’ve had one single run since my 1/2 marathon two weeks ago. It was an easy 4-miler and it was 9 days ago. How’s that for a taper?

This is going to be fun.

For an Achilles-busting good time, take a look at the race course and elevation profile:

HHFMM Course

At least it’s downhill for the last 6 miles, right? 😉

I definitely will be looking forward to the recovery beer that they’ll be serving at the finish line.

Well, I better get back to my homework before Goddess gets home and catches me goofing off. She’ll still know, since she reads this blog. But it’ll be after the fact.

  1. Wow, that’s some serious hillage for a marathon, especially one on a road instead of trails.

    And your taper sound about like my preparation for cyclocross this weekend…lets see, I’ve ridden my bike once for an hour on Thursday, and I played a soccer game. At least my race is only 40 minutes instead of 4 hours!
