I don't feel like I'm tapering at all... probably because for the last two weeks, I didn't do a mid-week run either. I've been super low mileage for the last three weeks, so I don't even know if what I'm doing now counts as tapering.
After the 22 miler, I went for a stroll on Sunday, did elliptical and weights on Monday, did an hour of yoga on Tuesday, and am going for a spin class tonight. Is this tapering, or am I doing too much? I don't feel like I'm tired or anything... it's the work-out volume that I am used to, but I don't know if it counts as tapering. I still have 18 more days till M-day, so I feel like I can truly REST when I get closer to the date. And with Thanksgiving coming up, you bet your little tush I am going to pig out and spend a couple of days recovering from a food coma. haha. Well.... hopefully not :)
I've also been thinking about what I want to do Post-Marathon. I will be traveling over the December holidays where I will not be able to run (for numerous reasons). I thought I wanted to get into the whole p90x thing, and really work on strengthening my muscles (and lose some lbs. I have put on WEIGHT with this whole marathon training thing. How is it possible that after hundreds of miles I still put on weight? blah) However, there are a couple of spring marathons I have my eye on, so taking 90 days off from running is no bueno. eh, I don't have to decide right now. I will have a better idea AFTER I see how the marathon goes in 18 days. eeeeeeeeek!
I can't believe it's sooooo close!!!! Almost time to start freaking out :)
