(I thought I was being really creative with this title, but with a quick Google search discovered I am not as original as I had hoped.)
Although my knee feels okay, I’m still being careful with it, since we all know pushing through a slight injury could lead to a more serious injury, which would lead to sadness and no more running for a bit. It’s also kind of good timing since it’s taper time before the Mermaid Series half marathon this Saturday. Now, it’s good to look back on past races and think about what worked and what didn’t, and I remember clearly that I felt like I tapered too much and carb-loaded too much before the Santa Barbara International Half Marathon in November. So hopefully this heavy taper won’t affect me as much since I feel like my mileage has been better this training period. But we shall see! I just know I won’t be stuffing my face with only carbs for the entire two days leading up to the race.
A few randoms:
– We ran out of coffee yesterday so I didn’t have any this morning before getting to work. This is probably why I accidentally drove to my parents’ house instead of work this morning. Oops.
– I was trying to clear out pictures that I didn’t use in my WordPress media bank and ended up deleting all my pictures, which looks like it deleted them from all my past entries as well. Hooray.
– This week is my and Jeremy’s last week at work. Pretty weird.
– Last night, Jeremy and I had our first Thai dinner together (somehow we went five years together without it). We went to TAP Thai here in town and it was SO GOOD. It will have to become a more frequent occurrence. It also really got us pumped up to visit Thailand, hopefully next year.
