And you know what that means?!
Haha, not really. I’m okay so far. But then again, I’m not really allowed to taper the way most runners do. Yes, I’ll cut back my runs and make them ‘easier’ and shorter, but my Jazzercise classes must go on! And without those, I would most definitely be cranky. 🙂
So I’m kinda feeling like this sums up how I’m feeling more.
It’s not easy to slow down and let my body rest, but I’m trying to embrace it and know that it’s good for me! So far, I’m completely okay with it. The end of the week may bring about some different emotions…we shall see!
This morning I was supposed to teach class at 5:40, but everyone slept in! So I just took it as a ‘Taper Week Blessing’ and headed back home to take Mac for a nice morning walk. I always love getting Mac out and about before my work day. And he loves walks with momma at anytime of day. 🙂
I taught Jazzercise tonight at 5:40 for another instructor (thank you, Rikki!) who agreed to trade me for my Friday evening class. Nick and I will be on the road right after work on Friday night to STL, so this trade allows us to get on the road sooner. But class went well, and I hopefully didn’t tire myself out too much. I will teach 2 classes tomorrow evening, and then Wednesday will be spent relaxing with my feet up! After I pack my bags, of course. It’s amazing how hard it can be to choose the perfect running outfit for a race.
Tomorrow I’m looking forward to sleeping in as late as possible! A rested body will only help me out this week. And with those hills I’m facing Saturday morning, I can take all the help I can get. ha!
Well have a great night everyone. Happy taper week! Let’s make it a good one!
