Only 4 more days!

I run a half marathon this Sunday, March 20th. Its the Mercer Island half marathon, and the course takes you all the way around the island. Now that its four days away I am officially tapering and have to stay away from the gym!!!

My trainer said she wished she could deactivate my membership for a couple days so that I will be forced to take some time off. That's how work out obsessed I am!

Whatever will I do? Its a good thing that my friend Renae is visiting this weekend! It will be a good distraction.

Although I am disappointed that I have to take time off, I do think it is necessary. Today I ran 5.77 miles, ran 2 miles on the elliptical, did 20 minutes of abs, foam rolled my legs, and did an hour weight class. Obviously a little rest is in order if I don't want to injure myself.

On another note, St. Patty's Day is tomorrow! I wonder what we will do for fun this year? Here was last year...I don't know if we can beat this fun night we had!!!


  1. Good luck!

    With all the training you are doing, you should train up to run a whole marathon! I am actually really jealous. I always wanted to run a marathon, but now I probably never will be able to.

  2. So glad you took the time off. A big part of training! So glad no injurys!
