I always feel like crap during taper.
My race results are all over the place so I'm not sure my taper correlates with my race performance at all. I usually feel slow, have strange taper pains happen, and then I experience mental taper madness with crazy dreams and anxiety. 3 weeks of taper always feels like a really long time to me and I am always convinced that I've lost all of my fitness during that time. My taper for Sugarloaf was 2 weeks-ish, which felt much better to me.
Run: 25 min tempo run this morning. 5 miles total on the day. It was 75* at 5am with a 66* dewpoint.
I shamelessly soaked in someone's sprinklers when I was done with my run. Light stretching and maybe some yoga tonight to stretch out my right hip flexor which is making itself known. I have an old vball injury that I don't want to flare up! I'm backing off the speedwork and just running easy for the rest of the week until my 5k on Saturday. <--this is me being careful
Food/drink: we are throwing a coworker a bridal shower at lunch. I'm kind of hoping for pizza since the place we order from has this amazing veggie pizza that sounds really good right now. Lots of water to drink because of the heat and humidity.
Blather: my boss has been scatterbrained lately. He sent me a message at 10pm last night asking if I could cover a day-long meeting tomorrow. I told him I could only cover a 2-hour window, and only if it was at our office, and he proceeds to inform me that it's at the client in Delaware, and I told him I couldn't go, so he said he'd sign me up and send me the info. ???
I reiterated that I couldn't go but I haven't heard back from him since. I think he's losing his mind.
Bonus: I don't think I ever ran at night as a kid.
I definitely do now if that's all my schedule allows or I decide to sleep in or something.
