7- One Week!

Yahoo!  T-1 week!  I'm getting so excited!  Although I am training through this race and not officially tapering, this week in general will be alittle lighter in the sense that I won't run more than once per day, and I will take Saturday off.  I don't want to arrive in Hopkinton tired/sluggish, but I also know that I won't be as fresh as if I had tapered for reals. 

Anyway, I'm really looking forward to the whole experience.  It is nice having it be my second year- I kind of know what to expect and I feel like I am taking a really good attitude toward the race itself.  Plus, I get to take a day off of work ;)  All good.

Today was an easy 7 miles.  4 up to the gym, and 3 with my mom.  I decided to skip the strength training at the gym, as it seemed to irritate my SI joint last week.  Instead, I biked for awhile and stretched, which was good.  Work, errands, and here I am!  Tomorrow is a long day of teaching, so I'm going to hop in bed soon.  My cold and/or allergies is still kicking my butt pretty bad, so extra rest never hurts!  Atleast that's what I tell myself when I get in bed when it is still light out......
