Doo dee dooo (twiddling thumbs...)
Been getting antsy. I suppose a true taper may not be all that necessary for a 5k in which I don't expect to get anywhere close to a PR, but I want to feel fresh for tomorrow's race. Yesterday, I did three sets of decline (feet on a chair) pushups. Today, I'll mess around with some dumbbells (Yikes. I guess that could be interpreted in a couple of ways) and maybe take a walk. It's been 5 years since I've run a road race. Shortly after that, I became chronically injured and figured that my running career was over for good. Tomorrow's race is pretty special to me just for that reason. I'd love to run well, but (as hokey as this sounds) just running it is a victory. I've learned to not take the ability to run for granted. Even though it could all come crashing down eventually, I'm loving every minute of every run this year! Good luck to everyone running a race this weekend!
