The Week of 06/02/2014: In the midst of life, we are in Taper

OK, it is official; something broke inside my head.  I have lost enthusiasm for writing these posts, and I have reduced enthusiasm for getting up early in the morning to run.  If I hadn't gotten my Saturday long run in in the evening, I might have skipped that too.  I'm almost to the starting line, just trying to hang on.

My right knee and plantar fascia are still bothering me.  They aren't painful, just bothersome.  They make me wonder what the late stages of the race are going to be like.  I am in full blown taper madness right now.  Anxieties be damned, I am going to run this thing.

Scheduled:  5 Mile Recovery Run

Saturday 06/07/2014

Scheduled: 12 Mile Long Run
Ran it.  I would have thought with the reduced mileage and the rest days that this run would have come easier, but by the end I could really feel it in my knee.  Again, not pain, just some discomfort.  The kind that makes you wonder what will happen at twice the distance.
