11- taper on.

Good evening!

Finally, a spare minute to post.  The last few days have been crazy with everything going on and finally I have the time and energy to write things up!

Where to begin....

Well, as I mentioned, Sunday meant 5am 10 miler and then off to Cedar Point with my students.  It was a difficult run, mostly just because I wanted it over so that I could get on with my day.  Cedar Point was actually really fun.  The bus ride wasn't too bad (as I anticipated it would be with 50+ high schoolers) and the day flew by.  I arrived home late, tired, and starving because Cedar Point had pretty much nothing gluten free, so I subsisted on a frozen banana all day.  Lol, bad plan.

So, after my first 100 mile week, I started my 'taper' yesterday.  I was over the 3 week mark for a rest day, so I 'just' ran with my mom yesterday morning- no additional miles.  My goal this week is to cut out all doubles and pull my milage back to 60 this week or so.  So today was an easy 8 miles with Mike and another friend in the evening.  I also squeezed in a 2 hour nap today, which was amazing.  I really need to catch up on sleep because I feel so behind after all the running/working/activities of this past weekend and I am a person VERY effected by lack of sleep.

So on that note, I'm off to bed.  Tomorrow I'm headed to the track to meet Mike for a workout.  I think we are going to do a ladder like last week, except add more stuff to it.  Should be interesting......
