Today is race day! This week I finished off my taper for my second half marathon. I took it easy and am trusting in the miles (all 165 of them) that I have already put in this training cycle! I'm hoping that by putting myself on a strict healthy diet based around lean protein, veggies and fruits the past 2 weeks will help me to feel my best on race day.
Tapering has made me grumpy this week, my poor husband :/ Needless to say I'm excited to indulge and eat french fries and ice cream after the race!
4.72 miles in 45 minutes avg pace 9:32 min/mile
10 minutes bike, 5 minutes rowing, Shoulder, biceps and triceps strength training, 15 minutes elliptical
3.2 miles in 30 minutes, avg pace 9:22 min/mile
I used this all week when I was craving/tempted by sweets!
Anyone else racing this weekend? I know a lot of people are doing the Cherry Blossom 10 miler today.
That's all for now!
