The Vancouver Marathon is on May 3rd and I am getting quite excited. I just have to get through this week and then the hard work will be done. The actual marathon is supposed to be the easy part. The training is what was tough.
The runs are getting shorter and I seem to have more time in the day. This tapering in the 10 days before a marathon can make me more antsy with more energy. But I am harnessing that energy by starting to coach my kid’s soccer team, and by continuing to bike to work. I don’t want to overdo the training and burn myself out. But I also cannot just stop running since I need to keep up my confidence and keep some speed in the legs.
