I'm finding myself a little restless these days, now that it's just a week before my marathon. No longer do I have to get up at the crack of dawn to get my runs in. I don't need to get out before sunrise to beat the heat!
I'm really enjoying the shorter mileage. I did participate in a 5k last week, the Esprit de She in Mesa, AZ. It was fun to get out there and push myself, since my long runs have been a bit on the slower side.
It was weird to only do a 5k, not the 10k like I did last year. Nevertheless, I finished in 25:14, which wasn't too shabby.
With only 1 more week until the Detroit Marathon, I plan on laying low. My "long" run for this weekend is "only" 8 miles! Happy dance! The bonus? I could wait until 8am to go out and run if I wanted to! What freedom! Tapering isn't so bad after all...
