Getting my run on.

Tapering?

I’m supposed to be tapering now for the 1/2 marathon. I think my long run this weekend is supposed to be 8 or 9 miles. I think by tapering they mean run less, not don’t run at all. And yet? I haven’t run since Friday. That’s bad, right? I missed my long run on Sunday. Why? I’m going with sunburn. I burned my back on Saturday while staining the deck and I just couldn’t imagine putting a sports bra on and having that rub on my back while I was running. It still hurts a bit. Maybe I’m a wuss but I’m also pink.

Today I had planned to do 4-5 miles. Instead Kris found out he needed to get to work on time today to take some training. I couldn’t get home from work any earlier than normal so as soon as I was home, Kris left. And then I was left with the kids and couldn’t get out for a run. I guess the thunderstorm warnings and ominous clouds didn’t help a ton either. Excuses, excuses though. I think I’ll get up early tomorrow to get a run in and then do Thurs and Fri as well, take Saturday off and get a run in again on Sunday. I have to. Otherwise I’ll feel the self sabotage setting in for sure.

Speaking of self sabotage, I’m totally sabotaging my weight loss with poor nutrition choices again. Today included chips, two cookies and a can of pop. Suck! Now that I’ve written it down and put it out there though, I’ll do better tomorrow. I have to. I want to fit into that bridesmaid dress this Saturday.
