Well it's been tapering week! (Which to be quite honest...wasn't all too different from a lot of other weeks in my training for my first ever half marathon.)
I only ran a short run once, instead of two short and one long run. I tried to mostly get some walking in.
Sunday: Rest/Eat Chinese food with BF's family for Mother's Day.

And gathered wild flowers.
Monday: Walk with Sister Courtney
Tuesday: 4 mile easy run..just to make sure things were working. I am a little worried about my running shoes...
Wednesday: Body Pump with my friend Brenda! I seriously used low weights...2.5 pounds on each side of the barbell...to ensure I wouldn't get sore. I did push myself on the abs portion though since I've heard a strong core makes a better runner.
Also eating pizza and cupcakes for a late mother's day. (Carbs right??)
Thursday: Stroller walk with the twins. Only 1.5 miles since it was WINDY.
The twins were sick...runny noses, yucky coughs, sneezing...
Developed a sore throat. Could not sleep because of my sore throat. I wonder if the cutie-pies above are to blame?? :-(
Saturday: Work for another 6 hours on my feet at coffee catering job.
|Served up drinks poolside...wish I had brought my swim suit!|

Sunday: THE BIG DAY THAT I'M SO NERVOUS ABOUT!!
Why am I nervous?
I haven't done a long run in about 3 weeks. This is making me a little crazy.
Also the most I've run is 9 miles.
Also I have a stinkin sore throat.
Also I am just now trying to figure out what I need to take with me...
My goal for Sunday: to finish. Ambitious huh?
Praying, praying and praying some more that my sore throat magically dissapears and that it's not raining tomorrow.
Off to finish my ipod list of race tunes! Can't find my sync cord thingy, though. *sigh*
Thanks for all of the support from my DailyMile, Twitter and of course my bloggy friends!
I might have skipped out on tomorrow if I didn't feel a little accountable to you all. <3
Much love and here's to a good night's rest!
