Last week proved to be rather challenging… spring break travel, a super grumpy hamstring… followed by tweeking my back… made for an interesting week. My mileage ended up a little lower than I had hoped for my peak marathon training week but I’d like to think that I’m better off in the long run by not pushing myself when my body was clearly protesting.

Put a fork in me, I’m DONE!

So I guess I’m officially tapering. My training week culminated with a 22-mile long run on Sunday followed by 24 hours at my happiest place on earth. Not Disneyland, but a retreat to a beloved hot spring in the mountains with Mr. Wasn’t Just the Wine Talking. I’m still completely blissed out and feeling grateful for such a relaxing and healing way to celebrate the hardest portion of my training cycle.

21 days to go!
