I am so, so glad to be in taper mode for my upcoming marathon. I think this taper came at the perfect time, truthfully. :) I was just starting to feel a little burnt out on long distances. This morningâ€™s 4.25 miler was a challenging run (because all mileage is an awesome challenge!), but a great change of pace.
I finished up in 42:00 or so. Only 11 days left until my marathon! Thatâ€™s only five more runs until race day.
A beautiful breakfast:
In the mix:
- 1/2 cup raw oatmeal (yes, it really tastes good)
- Honey Greek yogurt
I had a serious hankering for quesadillas! Mine was stuffed with stir-fry mushrooms, spinach, and cheddar cheese.
And roasted broccoli with BBQ sauce:
Off to coach Girls on the Run. Iâ€™m excited to see the girls! Soon weâ€™ll be doing a practice 5K, so Iâ€™m going to urge everyone to run 2.5 miles today.
Oh, and Maggie told me to tell everyone hello.
