let the taper begin.


okay gang, i rounded out last week with a 21 mile cruise along the lake. that puts me at 41 miles on the week and officially marks the beginning of my taper. coach b had me take miles 10-15 of the run at m.p. (i ended up taking them about 30 sec. faster) and boy did that do wonders for my confidence. i'm feeling good - physically AND mentally.

my mileage is dropping now in the run-up to the big day. i cross-trained tuesday, put in an easy 6 today, and have a hard progression run ahead of me tomorrow. so there you have it!

in honor of this milestone, then, i have decided to include a photo of my long-suffering and oh-so-reliable legs. send them your good karma! they've had a long road and it's not over yet. actually, it's nowhere near over! i can't help thinking back to the poster that hung above my bed for years as a kid: a vintage, first-edition, nike "there is no finish line." maybe i knew myself better at age eight than i would have guessed.

Look at those fabulous, strong, Kalenjin-like legs! I am in awe of you, my running goddess and inspiration.

Let the taper begin :-)

That Nike poster thing got me all like "Awwww, that's so cute."
Long live the taper!

Yes, happy tapering. And here's to our legs -- despite all the punishment, they bounce back ready for more. Most of the time, at least!

I will not agree on it. I over precise post. Expressly the title-deed attracted me to be familiar with the unscathed story.

Some of the sports that are being bet online are horse racing, greyhound racing, and football.Online betting works the same with all the betting websites on the net. These businesses have grown for years. You can play with it by using a single account. Some of these websites also offer gambling online, you are just like playing at the casino and you can bet using the same account.

You like the Chargers because they are having a great season, prolific offense, strong defense and they are racking up wins. Since the San Diego offense has been clicking, you also think that a lot of points will be scored during this game. http://www.pulsebet.com/bg/ http://www.pulsebet.com/da/ http://www.pulsebet.com/de/ http://www.pulsebet.com/es/ http://www.pulsebet.com/fr/ http://www.pulsebet.com/gr/ http://www.pulsebet.com/jp/ http://www.pulsebet.com/nl/ http://www.pulsebet.com/pl/ http://www.pulsebet.com/pt/ http://www.pulsebet.com/ro/ http://www.pulsebet.com/ru/ http://www.pulsebet.com/se/ http://www.pulsebet.com/it/ http://www.pulsebet.com/cn/
